I have a sinus infection and a urinary tract infection, but no history of hypertension. My blood pressure at 152/102. Is there an increase in blood pressure due to infections (sinus and urinary tract)?
I am not a physician and can't diagnose you over the internet, but yes, it's possible for infection to cause a temporary elevation in blood pressure.
I recommend monitoring your blood pressure and discussing with your physician.
All the best,
