You have been suffering from uncontrolled Hypertension
.BP of 160/110 is definitely a c/o Hypertension.
That too the average has been for over a week.
Have you been stopping the medicines off and on. One of the causes could be irregular medications.How about your salt intake/smoking/drinking/diet/lifestyle such as daily excercises.
Have you been on lipid lowering statins/not?
How about your Reports?
Routine --Blood including Lipid profile
Blood Urea Nitrogen/Creatinine and Urinalysis /Chest X-ray/EKG/Echo-Cardiogram/any Holter Monitoring of BP done in the past.Any abdomino-pelvic ultrasound done to rule out secondary Hypertension
due to renal causes.
Kindly get all the above investigations done and consult a Cardiologist
and get the Anti-Hypertensive Dosage adjusted to keep your average BP at 120/80at the minimum and 140/90 maximum average at any circumstances.
Long Term Side Effects of increased BP will be Target Organ Damage ie.Brain(Stroke),Heart(MI/Myopathy/Failure),Eyes(Retinopathy
),kidneys(Nephropathy and failure),Thats why Hypertension is termed a silent killer.
In view of the above, your taking the best possible evidence based treatment is mandatory.
Wish you a speedy recovery.
