Our expert says:
Pain causes temporary high blood pressure – you could have had a viral infection at the time. I would suggest that you just check your blood pressure daily at the pharmacy for a week and take the average reading to determine whether you really have a problem or not. Normal is up to 139 at the top and up to 90 at the bottom. Also repeat the ESR – it may be that the lab made a mistake!
