I have been suffering from migraine since childhood. I am now 46 years old. When I get severe migraine, my blood pressure goes 110/135. Is it common in migraine patient to get this kind of blood pressure when suffering from migraine. Kindly advise. Narayan.
A blood pressure reading of 110/135 is in the range to possibly cause a stroke.
For some people, Migraines - or any pain, for that matter - can cause dangerous increases in blood pressure levels. It's important to discuss this issue with your doctor and come up with a treatment plan for when you have a Migraine - a plan that addresses both the Migraines and the spike in blood pressure.
If your doctor isn’t able to help, it may well be time to consult a Migraine and headache specialist. It’s important to note that neurologists aren’t necessarily Migraine and headache specia...
Good question. This diagnosis of “office-related” high blood pressure is usually suggested when the blood pressure is elevated during an office visit, but is not usually during the activities of every day life. This may be caused by the anxiety of being in a doctor’s office. Normally, blood pressure increases during activity and decreases at rest. It’s often higher in cold weather and can rise when you’re under stress, startled by a loud noise or feel threatened. If your blood pressure is high in the doctor’s office monitoring your blood pressure at home can help determine your true blood pressure. The best way to get an accurate reading is to take your blood pressure once a day at the same time so you minimize the effect that external factors have on the reading. A single high reading of blood pressure is not a cause for alarm. If you do note recurrent high readings, let your doctor know. Monitoring at home is a good way to determine your true blood pressure and give your doc...
Blood is carried from the heart to all the body's tissues and organs in pipes, called arteries and veins. Blood pressure is the force of the blood pushing against the walls of those pipes. The unit for measuring blood pressure is millimeters of mercury (mmHg). In most people, hypertension , or high blood pressure , is defined as either: a systolic pressure consistently at 140 or higher or a diastolic pressure consistently at 90 or higher. In some groups, such as those with diabetes or kidney disease , a high blood pressure is a systolic blood pressure (top number) of 130 or higher or a diastolic blood pressure (bottom number) of 80 or higher. Each time the heart beats (about 60 to 70 times a minute at rest) it pumps blood out into the blood vessels. When the heart is pumping the blood, it is called systolic pressure. When the heart is relaxing in between beats, your blood pressure falls; this is the diastolic pressure. A normal blood pressure is less than 120 (systolic)/80 (diastolic). If the...
