This answer was rated:

High blood pressure for the last 2-3 months. Why would the doctor ask me if I have had any headaches while discussing the high blood pressure?

An high blood pressure may cause headache as a symptom. So this is the reason your doctor asked about it.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.


I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.

so its not a warning sign besides the fact I have high blood pressure?

The headache alone would not be the warning sign, unless it is excruciating (with the high blood pressure). It is seen in the adjunct of many other findings and symptoms, as following;

1) the headache is very severe or excruciating with the very high blood pressure reading.
2) any other symptoms like weakness or imbalance or dizziness.

A chronic high blood pressure with not very high readings do not cause any sudden damage to brain or heart but can be responsible for the long term gradual damage to these organs.

It is privilege assisting you.
