I have had a...

I have had a headache for two days and medication has not helped. Neck pain too. I decided to take my blood pressure and the first reading was 157/97, I rested and took it again on the opposite arm and it was 153/94. Should I be concerned?

Doctor's Assistant: Is the headache episodic or daily? And what about nausea?

The headache has been ongoing for the last two days, including when I awaken at night to let my dogs out. I’ve take Tylenol one day and ibuprofen today. I normally take one pill (I take less than a normal dosage and it works for me). No nausea.

Sorry for late reply and inconvenience.

Thanks for all these additional information.

I understand your concern.

Well as you describe, your current headache is associated either with Hypertension( high blood pressure) or Cervical spondylosis(a cervicogenic headache and pain in the neck).

Now, I would recommend taking OTC Aspirin.

Hydrate yourself with plenty of fluids.

Limit your salt intake.

Do deep breathing.

Do gentle massage with muscle relaxant ointment and warm compresses on the back of the neck.

Take proper rest.

Take OTC Meclizine for dizziness.

And see your doctor for a clinical examination and if required your doctor may prescribe a low dose of anti-hypertensive medications to treat high blood pressure.

Let me know if you have any further query so we can discuss it thoroughly in every aspect.

My physician probably cannot see me right away. Should I wait till next week or go to ER?

Thanks for the follow-up.

You try such measures initially and see a doctor in an ER for further management.

Hope this helps.

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
