yes, severe headaches can cause high blood pressure.

but even without headaches, patients at age 70 can have high blood pressure

your blood pressure needs to be monitored to see if you have high blood pressure all the time.

if you have high blood pressure most days, you will need treatment to bring down your blood pressure.

blood pressure of 191/90 is very high and can be dangerous at your age and increase your risks for stroke or heart attack.

you have to see a doctor right away or go to the ER right away

let me know if you have questions.
