After whiplash I suffered...

After whiplash I suffered a dislocated jaw and damage to the trigeminal nerve now my blood pressure is very high

Doctor's Assistant: Your nerves are the communications system for your body so you are doing the right thing consulting our Expert about anything to do with them. Losing comms is not good. Please give me a bit more information, so the Neurologist can help you best.

From the whiplash I suffered paralysis is several muscle groups in the left side of my face. now several yuears later after a malocclusion in my bite I suffered a dislocation of the jaw on the left side and am in severe pain from TMJ and my blood pressure is very high as well as an elevation of normal heartrate from 54 to 60 and my BP was always perfect and now is 160 over 110

Doctor's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Neurologist should know?

Also persistant vertigo ear and vision problems

Hello

What is your question exactly?

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
My blood pressure only went up after the dislocation of my jaw and damage to the trigeminal nerve...it was suggested that I consider blood pressure meds which I don't want to do. Am I wrong to treat the cause rather than the symptom? Does blood pressure rise from damage to the nerve rather than the other way around since I've never had this before the injury? My normal HR is less than 54, very low respiration rate and normal bp 118/68
Doctor: DrRussMD, Board Certified Physician replied 2 years ago

There is no evidence , medically speaking, that this is from your injury.

The blood pressure is too high, and unless you have a way to bring it down that is working, you do need medication.

Physical therapy stress reduction, biofeedback, correct diet, exercise, all might help, but this needs to be monitored by your doctor.

OK, so you might have more questions or want to give me more information: Please use reply to expert if you have further questions. When you are ready, please click a positive rating [hopefully excellent—that’s how we are paid, per rating]. If you forgot something, come back. I am here daily

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.
