Hi again: no I have no underlying medical conditions that might explain the reactions. I've never had blood pressure problems in my life.
Only the first episode I wrote about involved a severe headache. Since then, I've spiked as high as 170-180/90s with some ringing in my ears and palpitations but no headache.
I saw my doctor yesterday. We're going to give it one more week- if no improvement I'll probably have to stop the Parnate and try a different MAOI.
