Have : Have you repeated the blood pressure to make sure the value you got was accurate? If this is a severe headache, i recomend that you take him to the emergency room. I can not tell by reading this if he has chronic hypertension. I don't know if his blood pressure is causing his headache or if his headache is so severe, that it is causing his blood pressure to rise. In general blood pressure reading of 180 or higher for the top number (systolic pressure) and 110 on the bottom or higher (diastolic pressure) is pretty significant. Since there isn't much information here, i recommend a prudent approach and that you take him to the emergency room so that he can be checked out. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Absolutely!: You most likely have viable sperm still. You have already proven that you can do it by having your 5yo.

Remember the fat though, i always recommend skim milk, and at most 2%, for adults. ...Read more
