Have you noticed a very strong tightness in your neck and shoulder muscles during these flare-ups. I have been fighting high BP for many years and have many flare-ups, especially when I'm on my computer for several hours. My neck and shoulder muscles get so tight that I cannot turn my head, When this happens my BP explodes as yours does. So high that I've had to be hospitalized. I've been told that when this happens my heart cannnot pump enough blood to my brain so my BP flies off the charts very fast.
I wish you the best of luck in finding the answer….Bill
Yes, lately the sides of my neck hurt really bad and get stiffer feeling when my BP goes up. I usually have major pain in the middle of my back below my right shoulder blade. The doctors don’t know what to think about it. Going to pain management and a kidney doctor in the next 2 weeks. Let’s see if they find anything.
