Elevated blood pressure when sick.

Q: Why does my blood pressure go up when I’m sick?

A: The pain associated with an illness can increase blood pressure. Often the drugs people take to make them feel better are the cause. Pain killers such as Advil, Motrin, and Aleve can increase blood pressure. Cold pills containing decongestants can increase blood pressure. Inadequate fluid intake during illness can contribute. These are just some of the many factors that can cause
an increase in blood pressure with illness.
