Q: Can allergies cause high blood pressure?

Can allergies cause high blood pressure? I am not talking about the medication to treat them, just the allergies themselves.

JBD,

 

I am not a doctor and can't diagnose you over the internet, but like our other community member stated, nearly any stress on the body has the ability to affect your blood pressure.  How do you know that your blood pressure is high?  Are you experiencing any specific symptoms?

 

I would recommend keeping a log of your allergy symptoms and blood pressure readings, and if you still are concerned, please see a physician.  You can look at the links below to see where your blood pressure rests in terms of your health.

 

Best of luck,

James

Allergies can trigger inflamation, which can raise blood pressure. In general the body's to any stess includes higher blood pressure.

 

I have had great success using a mix of raw garlic, ginger, lemmon and honey. This is a potent anti inflamitory. If you had inflamation, this should also lower your BP.

 

Good luck!
