Headache is not associated with hypertension (except in those with very high blood pressure levels). The alternate view, shared by many patients and some physicians, may increase the anxieties of the hypertensive patients, and thus contribute to their headaches. Indeed, work by Stewart suggests that headache was considerably more prevalent among patients who knew they had hypertension than among those who were not aware of the existence of the elevated blood pressure levels.
