Does Trapped Wind Cause A Considerable Rise In Blood Pressure?

Some time i get trapped wind in my tummy just like babies do, but when I check my bp during this episode i get very high blood pressure 170 over 97. few minutes later when I do not feel the trapped wind the bp goes back to normal. Is this normal or should I be worried ?


Hi Khalid,

Not a reaction I'm familiar with, but it is possible there is a link. If you experience pain as a symptom it may cause a blood pressure spike. I recommend discussing with your physician.

All the best,
