Welcome and thanks for your question. That much weight gain in 5 days sounds like a fluid build up in your tissues. Your symptoms do not really sound related to high BP itself, but could be a symptom of heart disease. You should discuss this with your doctor at your first opportunity.

It may just be a bug or even anxiety as suggested, which would be my first thought as well, but I don't think it's tied to your BP.

Hope this helps,

I saw my doc yesturday and I have fluid retention from the transfusion, a fluid overload like he said and my heart his working to much to get the fluid out, but he gave me some Hyzzar something like that to get my BP down and something in it for my retention, I feel a bit better no more headaches and neckpain but my heartbeat his very high and I get some muscle pain in my legs, hand and like in my ribs, I wonder if my potassium his low, I had that before and sounds like it but not sure, right now Im resting and my pulse his 130 so that his way to high and can't sleep because Im to hyper :S
