Not at all, you said you have severe hypertension, this implies your blood pressure is raised.

Customer: replied 7 days ago.
Ok
Expert:  Tim Brown replied 7 days ago.

Do you mean you have had a headache sorry?

Also regarding your alcohol, how much were you drinking and when did you stop?

Expert:  Tim Brown replied 7 days ago.

Alcohol withdrawal often requires regular alcohol intake, is this not the case?

Expert:  Tim Brown replied 7 days ago.

You also say you could be dehydrated, what are you currently drinking? Are you passing urine?

Expert:  Tim Brown replied 7 days ago.

I would suggest if these symptoms you mention are acute and only just started, an urgent blood test would be sensible. However some of what you mention does make this possibly psychological in cause.

If this is acute, then attending a local Accident and Emergency would be sensible

Customer: replied 7 days ago.
They same to be on the acute side already
Expert:  Tim Brown replied 7 days ago.

So you should consider getting examined more urgently, I would suggest a blood test would be very useful given some of the symptoms you state.
