Some people's BP goes up at night. Weird, right because you're sleeping, but we see it frequently around here. Do you have excessive swelling elsewhere? The cerbral swelling happens when the body tries to find places to store extra fluid that it can't flush. Hand in hand with cerebral swelling comes anxiety, nervousness, visual disturbances, and brisk reflexes.
If anything else changes, please do call or go in right away, and don't wait until tomorrow.
"The PE Headache" is typically excruciating, but any headache with other symptoms is worth mentioning to the doc.
