Late evening both my...

Late evening both my temples suddenly swelled, my wife could literally see it happening, I looked like Mega mind. My left one is still somewhat swollen.

Doctor's Assistant: Any recent injuries? How long have you been dealing with the swelling?

No injuries, 1st time this has happened.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Last Tuesday on the recommendation of my doctor I was in the hospital overnight because my blood pressure went up to 180 over 110 and I had a constant headache I could not get rid of. They got my pressure down and took care of the headache. I was released the next day

I am sorry your temples are swelling

how old are you?

very high blood pressure can cause blood vessels in the temple area to swell up.

too much salt intake can increase blood pressure and cause temple blood vessels to swell up as well

are you on high blood pressure medications now?

are you able to cut down or cut out your salt intake?

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.
