Hi. Sudden spike in BP whilst resting. 211/185 pulse 72. Not anxious. Headache left sided and severe.  Went down to 156/85 quickly.  Why?

#'s probably wrong: I have never seen anyone have a blood pressure of 211/185. The bottom number (diastolic) is too high. I could believe 211/130, but 211/185 not possible in my opinion.

If you have a a bad headache, you should report this to your doctor immediately. ...Read more
