All of a sudden my blood pressure went really high and my doctor wanted me to double my meds. Since then my blood pressure has been going up and down. Does being out in the sun and heat cause this?

I've been taking this med now for more than 10 years. It works very well, and I don't even know I'm taking it, other than dropping it in my weekly pill dispenser.
