Back in October (2008) I had a migraine that lasted for a week so when I went to get some Tylenol from the medics here at work, they decided to check my blood pressure for "fun".
Turns out it was 176/95 - I'm only a 21 year old female!  They sent me to the hospital right away but of course the doctors there told me that since I wasn't having a heart attack, they weren't going to help me. I'm on my 5th type of blood pressure pill and seemed to be working some. But recently, I've started getting this pressure feeling in my head. I can be sitting down, walking, driving, etc. and all of a sudden this rush of pressure will go from the back of my head to the front - it has been messing up my vision, I feel weak, etc.  Does anyone know what this pressure is from? It's sort of scaring me now and it's beginning to hurt because the pressure is getting stronger.
