BP can cause HA.: Elevated blood pressure numbers, possibly as low as 140/80 if said numbers increase rapidly, can cause a headache. But not all headaches are due to high blood pressure numbers.

And my pulse is 128 is it high and if it is what do I do?

Blood pressure is ok: but your heart rate sounds a little high. That might be related to what you are doing or just did before you measured it. If you are sitting for 3 minutes relaxing I would suspect your heart rate should be closer to 60. If you are concerned bring this to the attention of your health care provider and get a thorough check up. ...Read more

No Fever: Don't be concerned with low body temperature unless cold exposure, very young or very old. Your body's natural rhythms will cause temp variation through day. Temp taking technique can also show varied results. Body adjusts bloodflow to skin to protect core temp and will alter temp you can measure from outside body. ...Read more

Blood : Blood pressure normally varies throughout the day. A single reading that is high does not mean you have high blood pressure. Recording your blood pressure at home and at work may provide additional information. Once blood pressure rises above 115/75 mm hg, the risk of cardiovascular disease begins to increase. Home blood pressure monitoring can help you keep closer tabs on your blood pressure. Home blood pressure monitors are widely available, and you don't need a prescription. If your blood pressure is under control, you may be able to make fewer visits to your doctor if you monitor your blood pressure at home. You can help keep your blood pressure from being high with diet and other measures. The dietary approaches to stop hypertension (dash) diet emphasizes fruits, vegetables, whole grains and low-fat dairy foods. Maintain a healthy weight, don’t smoke, restrict salt, exercise, avoid stimulants and excess caffeine, reduce stress to the degree possible, and consider meditation/relaxation. Here is a link to the dash diet. ...Read more

BP rise: It's normal and healthy for BP to rise when you stand. This generally occurs after a transient drop (lasting a few seconds). The initial drop is due to the effect of gravity on your circulating blood volume. The rise that follows is due to activation of your autonomic nervous system which constricts veins in your pelvis and legs. Hope you feel better - rest and drink plenty of fluids. ...Read more
