Can a trauma raise blood pressure?

Can an upsetting incident cause blood pressure that is usually normal to jump?  For a week after the incident I had a horrible headache.  I finally went in to the doctor and my blood pressure was 156/100. My doctor gave me Atenenol to get it down.  My pulse now is 58 and bp is 90/70.  I am very tired and dizzy now, though.

Yes, stress and anxiety can cause blood pressure to increase, though it should not lead to a sustained elevation of blood pressure. It sounds like you are having side effects from the atenolol. You should let your doctor know this; you may need a lower dose or a different medication altogether.
