A blood pressure reading has two numbers: a systolic blood pressure and a diastolic blood pressure. The systolic blood pressure is the maximum pressure the blood exerts on the vessels when the heart is beating. The diastolic blood pressure is the pressure the blood exerts on the vessels in between heartbeats. Hypertension, or high blood pressure, begins when the systolic blood pressure remains above 140 or when the diastolic blood pressure remains above 90. Hypertension can be a result of increased blood flow through vessels or increased resistance to ...Read more
Kidney stones: While the kidneys do have a roll in regulating blood pressure, it is unlikely that the presence of non-obstructing stones in the kidney would increase blood pressure.

I have high levels of neutrophils and low lymphocytes bone aches high blood pressure kidney stones and daily migraines? What could be wrong
Plan for each: You have a variety of symptoms, some of which may be related ... others not. I don't think there is one diagnosis that explains all of your symptoms. You need to work closely with a doctor you have confidence in to diagnose and properly treat all of these. Don't get discouraged .... wonder about smoking with the high neutrophils. If so, this is a good place to start. Good wishes:) ...Read more

Need for testing: Kidney stone will not cause white discharge from urethra. You should be tested for STD. Some of the STDs may take more than 2 months to manifest. Please see your doctor and if you do not have one, you may contact your city/county health department for testing.

Kidneys are delicate: The kidneys filter all of your blood 24 hours a day. In order to filter the blood, they have a very delicate system of membranes and tissues to keep the good stuff in and let the bad stuff go out. When your blood pressure is always high, it puts a lot of stress on these delicate parts. The kidneys then respond by trying to thicken up the membranes, which causes problems filtering blood. ...Read more

Ask your doctor about Flomax (tamsulosin) as an aid to passing your kidney stone. Be sure to strain your urine to get the stone! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

That being said, there is evidence that obesity, high-fat diet, & sodium are risk factors for both hypertension and stones. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
