Q: Can blood pressure increase due to a sinus or urinary tract infection?

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)?

Hi Krazy,


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,
