About 12 yrs ago I was diagnosed with pcos when I had to have 2 cysts removed from my left ovary. I was 16. Since then I have had blood tests and regular check ups and all tests were clear. I recently went to doc with concern over felt pressure on my bladder which turned out to be 2 days before my period. Tests came back clear for infections. Also last 2 years I have had a sudden development t of dry scaly patches on skin. This they said was dermatitis.
But recently after my visit to doc in relation to pressure before period she was concerned about my blood pressure as it was raised really high 150's/105's. I was put on a 24 hr monitor and waiting results.
I am wondering can the presence or a new ovarian cyst be a possible cause of my bp increase?
Stress can cause temporary rise in blood pressure because of anxiety. However ovarian cysts per se should not result in hypertension. Also it can be related to age and lifestyle issues. Follow up with your Doctor.
Hope this helps.
