Not sure why BP severely elevated. Cont'd rising to 229/112. Went to ER given clonidine. Lisinopril added to prescription atenolol. Can chronic pain elevate bp?

In brief: Get evaulated

Don't stop with your er evaluation.
Take your meds, keep a BP diary and get in to see your doc. An ultrasound of your kidneys and the arteries going to your kidneys and several other tests need to be done. Your risk for cardiovascular events is high, however, you can lower your risk. Get help. Be well.

In brief: Not to that level.

Monitor your BP at home so you know its true level.
Work with your doctor to get it down to a normal range. Also, be evaluated for underlying causes of a BP elevation of that degree.
