My workers compensation claim was made in the State of: Kansas

I had carpal tunnel surgery today, previous to the surgery I went off all meds.
This morning when my blood pressure was taken it was 169/89, I was having muscle spasms of the neck & shoulders, had a headache, and was naseous.
The norm BP for me is 110/70.
I do not like taking any meds, a personal issue.
I try and get by with an over the counter pain patch, and tens unit.

I have noticed when the pain is high so is the BP.

Am I doing more harm to the body by not taking the meds?
