    I told you guys about some strange bp readings at the horsepital when the contact lens was stuck in the eye. Well, last week I was supposed to do a taping for a tv show and I could not read the screen with my good eye..eyes looked like slits and eyes were sick looking, bp at home was back up to 170/110 and I felt lousy. So then I call the doc and off I go again. Then I am told again that I have a sinus infection and that may be upping my bp. Doc once again says it is within normal range at his office?:wow: So I on;y take antibiotics and Aleve and no bp meds but then all of a sudden the bp is 111/70 to 121/81 and is not moving? My eyes look different and i can see out of the eye...can an infection mess you up that bad?? I guess I will keep writing down the bp readings for the doc but this really seems strange. Feel like I am going to die one evening and the next day totally fine. Maybe it is Obamastress..:faint:Anyone ever have this kind of stuff happen?

    i don't have blood pressure problems, but a lot of sinus problems, including, my right side is always swollen shut, causes dizziness out of nowhere, or blitzkrieg like headaches.:dunno:, vision can go from blurry to double and back to normal in seconds.
    good luck with yours, the BP stuff can be dangerous.:wavey:

    The doc told me that my bp problems are more likely than not caused by my sinuses. :shocked:

    Sinus problems can jack up all sorts of stuff!

    That does sound strange though, have you seen multiple docs?

    Mine get bad enough some times where I consider surgery. Had a buddy go through with it and he said he feels 10x better.

    Ant pain or stress will drive your BP up.

    When I had a kidney stone my BP was 210 over 170.
    As I also had an ongoing heart problem, the doctor decided it had to come down. 4 doses of morphine later it was low enough he sent me home to pass it.

    So, yes, sinus infections can raise your BP.

    I don't recommend morphine for your BP if you are still doing stuff, it can make you very tired.

    Morphine sounds pretty good to me. :whistling: I am sure the sinuses are driving me to strange looks and high bp. Up and down depending on how the sinuses are acting with this infection. :shocked:
