Hallo Mom of 3
I won't take that blood pressure reading seriously at all. A cuff that does not fit properly does not give an accurate reading.
The dull headache you have could be due to tension headache (the muscles in your neck and upper back that attaches to the skull pulling) but the sharp stabs could be kind a migraine ( ice pick headache) that could be hormone related.
If your legs are swollen, and with having high blood pressure, one should just exclude early heart failure or kidney problems due to the diabetes, so a physician would be the right person to see for a proper evaluation.
