Not necessarily: Sounds like you're ill - maybe a viral syndrome, middle ear infection, or flu-like illness. Once you're better, your BP may normalize. Moreover, if you avoid salt, exercise, and work towards optimizing your weight (if you're not already there), your BP will fall. Buy a cuff and start checking your own BP. You may well not need the med for long. Your BP is only a tad high. ...Read more

Stuffy ears that won't pop with runny nose & cough? For about 1-2wks now. Not extreme pain (0-2). Affects 1 ear then goes over to the next. Help!?
Runny nose: Your runny nose is causing some swelling in the back of your nose, near the opening of the eustachian tube, the tube that connects your nose and your ears. Usually related to cold or upper respiratory infection or even sinus infection. Try some nasal saline irrigation to clear out the mucous. Can also try an antihistamine, if allergies. If bacterial infection, you probably need to see your doc. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Had lower rt wisdom tooth extracted 3 months ago using local. Tooth impacted took 1 1/2 hours to remove. Swollen still, clicking jaw, stuffy ears tmj?
Problems still: Swelling is the tissue response to an injury or infection. I would check with your dentist to see which of these exists. The clicking indicates you have a problem inside the joint and since the back of the joint shares structures with the ear, there may be a relationship there as well. That will require a more comprehensive evaluation and treatment as TMJ problems don't cure themselves. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
