Thoughts: Azomid is useful for your ITB but is not a “pain pill”. We do like more information regarding complex problems like yours. Suggest Concierge visit to sort this out

A 38-year-old member asked:

Does pregnancy-induced hypertension cause placental abruption?

Yes: High blood pressure, whether present before pregnancy or whether it develops during pregnancy, does increase a woman's risk for abruption. But most women with high blood pressure never have an abruption.

Yes: It is normal to have a headache after a head injury. But there are several things you need to keep track of. It is not normal for your child to have several episodes of vomiting or loss of consciousness after a head injury. Other worrisome signs after a head injury include seizures, irritability, changes in vision or changes in behavior.

Dr. Irv Lohanswered

Hormonal: The kidneys are a pivotal component of blood pressure control with multiple mechanisms that can elevate the blood pressure. Disease of the kidneys themselves can induce release of hormones that raise the blood pressure. The arteries that feed the kidneys can have partial blockages that cause the kidneys to secrete hormones to raise the bp. Glands that are adjacent can also release BP hormones.

A 46-year-old female asked:

I ve had hbp ranging from 170 /110 and pulse at about 100 120 most of the time for about a week despite taking BP drugs. Ekg was negative. Thoughts?

Check with the doc: Many blood pressure medications take longer than a week to have their full effect. Check with your doctor as you may need a higher dose or another medication. Hbp is damaging over the long term most of the time and not over a few days so check with your doctor.
