Can constipation cause high blood pressure?

Ask Dr. Rowena

Q: Is there a relationship between blood pressure and constipation? As I get constipation bowel pains my blood pressure spikes to 180/190 over 95.

A: Pain from any source can cause an increase in blood pressure. Your pressure is spiking to a worrisome level. You should discuss this with your doctor. Adding more fiber to your diet should help prevent constipation. You might want to eat more prunes.
