At my exam yesterday, I was told I have high blood pressure.(150/100.) I have to go back in 2 weeks to have bloodwork done, to check my thyroid, sugar, etc. I have days where I just don't feel good, aches & pains,fatigue, etc. Anyone else that has HBP, & were you feeling any different than normal? The doc said I might have to take meds if my pressure is still high in 2 weeks, when I go back.Answer Question

My husband has HBP and takes 2 medications to control it, he doesn't notice a difference. I had HBP when my thyroid went bad, I had a lot of symptoms but they were symptoms of having a bad thyroid, not HBP. I've heard of HBP being referred to as the silent killer because you don't know you have it unless you get checked.
