In brief: Sometimes it does

The principal side effects of Celebrex (celecoxib) are stomach irritation, increase in BP.
See how you feel by tomorrow. Most people don't have serious side effects with it.

In brief: Pretty save.

Celebrex is save, with few side effects.
Nevertheless, with your BP I would prefer you use Tylenol (acetaminophen) since Celebrex and any other COX inhibitor ( Motrin, Alleve ) may increase you BP more. It is possible that your headache is caused by hight blood pressure.
