Expert Answer:

Sudden rise in blood pressure could be due to any of the following reasons:

  • Side effects from certain drugs (both prescription and "street" drugs such as cocaine and amphetamines)

  • Conditions where the body produces too much of certain hormones

  • Narrowing of the blood flow to the kidneys, or other types of kidney disease

  • Certain complications of pregnancy
