Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

That value for BP is rather high...
You should be seen and followed up by a cardiologist.
In view of your age, you need extensive investigations for hypertension – for example, structure and function of Kidneys and adrenals need to be checked...
ECHOcardiogram / TMT (Treadmill exercise ECG) may be necessary for further assessment and assistance.
The treating doctor may suggest them depending on need, based on his assessment of the situation
There are several classes of drugs and several drugs in each class – your doctor will prescribe appropriate combination of drugs to mange.
Did you follow up your pressure?

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
