Can high blood pressure cause your hemoglobin to be high? Mine is 17? I was just put on meds last Friday for blood pressure. Do I need to be seen asap

In brief: Not the cause

There are many reasons for a minimally elevated hemoglobin.
Hypertension alone is not one of them. Your work up can proceed at your convenience.
