Elevated blood pressure from sinus ache.

Q: My B/P is usually between 128/70 &130/80.Today it was 160/90 for the first time ever. But I have been plagued over the weekend with a sinus ache caused by dry air from the heating system. Could that have caused my B/P today? My doctor will see me again in 2 weeks.

A: If you are taking medicine for your sinus headache, it is possible the medicine is causing your increase in blood pressure. Many over the counter medicines for sinus problems, headaches, and colds contain drugs that increase blood pressure. Check your pressure again when you are feeling well.
