... normal?. My container slipped to the back of the drawer and I overlooked it
If you know me, you will know you are narrowly escaping a lecture. You know you are on bp medication, you have got to remember to take it. Going to the back of the drawer is no excuse. Get a weekly pill box so you know if you took your medication that day. Of course your blood pressure will go up you aren't taking your bp med. Start taking it today and don't forget it again, that's really a dangerous thing to do. Well you got a bit of a lecture, but I have a fit when people endanger themselves by being careless.
You could have had a stroke! Headaches can be a sign your B/P is very high or you may have no signs at all-that is why hypertension (high blood pressure) is called The Silent Killer! As Kaismama mentioned, get yourself a weekly pill box and set your meds up in the box, that way you know you have taken the med. I leave the top flipped up so I know that I have taken mine. Blood pressure medications are important and you were having symptoms of elevated blood pressure from not taking your medications.
