I will add this increase in blood pressure was I think because of azithromycin .. I initially went in to the doctor because I think I have Valley Fever (I live in a dusty area of Arizona) and have 7 of 9 symptoms .. the doctor said no (not sure why) gave me a EKG and when it came back normal said she thought it would but the tranee nurse wanted it done .. still haven't been able to get a simple blood test which is how you check for valley fever .. Doctors are so pompous!!!
