Get this checked: Your blood pressure seems on the borderline high side, and you should have this monitored by your primary doctor, but not the cause of your headaches, which could be due to many relatively benign causes. Advise you to track this down also, as many ways of treating. Would avoid NSAID drugs due to BP effect. (lastly, cocoa may be shown useful in hypertension, being looked at closely).
