When I cough, I get a sharp pain in my right temple. I do have high blood pressure. My fear is that I have a weak spot in my vein that is causing pressure when I cough like a bubble on a tire. Is this possible? Is there a different likely cause?
Headache after coughing or sneezing is due to the exertion and is exertional headache.It lasts few minutes and is something usual.But since you are having high blood pressure it should be under control.Since when are you having cough?Did you have any cold/cough?Once or twice pain is ok but on several occasions it is a cause of concern.Take steam inhalation 3 times in a day.It will help in relieving congestion and also relieve cough.
You require a proper Lung examination.Kindly visit a Physician for evaluation and if required get cold and cough medications.
