Is There Any Sinus Problems That Can Cause High Blood Pressure?

Are there any sinus problems that can cause high blood pressure? I live in a very dry climate now and I have developed sinus problems, high blood pressure, and migraines.

Answer

Hi Paul,

It is possible for pain (such as from a migraine) or infection to be connected to high blood pressure. I recommend discussing with your physician to determine an appropriate treatment plan. I can't think of any sinus issues that would cause the high blood pressure if they're not related to pain.
