Hi Raj.
Your wife has subclinical hypothyroidism and that is the reason for her prolactin to be this high. high prolactin is one of the reasons for your wife to take treatment for her subclinical hypothyroidism. Otherwise it will lead to menstrual irregularities and then infertility. High BP could also be part of hypothyroidism. But a combination of high BP, high pulse are symptoms which warrant you to take her to a good physician as soon as possible. Headache and flushing can be part of high BP. She might also have bad urinary tract infection leading to all these symptoms. Please see a physician ASAP and the subclinical hypothyroidism can be investigated and treated later once her acute symptoms are dealt with on urgent basis.
I hope you got your answer. Get back for any further query.
