Ear Infection And High Blood Pressure
What would cause a severe headache located behind the left ear at the base of the skull. Pain meds haven't helped. Now what? Medical history: heart surgery, diabetic, high blood pressure
Headaches and their causes can be complicated, difficult diagnoses to make. With your past history of diabetes and high blood pressure, you should make an appointment with your doctor for a complete evaluation as soon as possible. You doctor will take a thorough history and do a neurological evaluation to try and find out what is causing your symptoms. You may want to think about the answers to some of the questions they may ask you such as:
- when did it start?
- how often do they happen?
- are they getting more frequent or more painful?
- how long do they last?
- what does the headache feel like and can you point to it?
- does it occur around the same time at night or does it ever happen during the day?
- what other symptoms do you have and when do they occur in regards to the headache?
- have you had any big life changes?
- how is your lifestyle? Are you getting enough sleep, eating well, exercising?
- are you taking any medications? Do you drink caffeine and how much?
Answering these questions may help your doctor figure out what is causing your headaches, whether it is a serious problem or not, and how to help you. Good luck! ...Read more
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.

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
