    At a recent doctor's appointment for chest pain, they took my blood pressure and it was 155/101. More than a week later, it has stayed high despite my being put on blood pressure medications. I feel so dizzy and I am having severe stomach pains and headaches, plus I am still having the chest pains and a fast heart rate. I feel like I might have some sort of infection - could this be causing my high blood pressure?
