Cervical problems causing high blood pressure ????
I was wondering if anyone has been told that their high blood pressure is being caused by neck problems. I haven't been told that, but have read that it is possible.
I haven't had high blood pressure in the past, but have now been told that it is high (160/92) Had it rechecked two weeks later, and it is still high - about the same. Will have another test in 2 weeks and if it is still the same, they will give me a 24 hour monitor.
I now wonder if it could be caused by my neck problems; particularly the compression on my cord.
How do they find out what is causing high blood pressure? Perhaps they can't tell what is causing it.
It is amazing that 3 years ago my health was fine and I would only visit the doctor about once every three years, but since my spinal problems were diagnosed, I have had all sort of health issues.
