welcome to HealthcareMagic
The BP of 171/106 is high and if it is constantly high you need to consult a doctor and get examined.Commonly used electronic BP apparatus may at times show variable readings so it is better to get it checked with a manual mercury BP apparatus.So get the BP checked and then looking at your age the doctor may start you on some antihypertensive medicines to control you BP if it is high.
thanks for the query,
well you can never say when the blood pressure can increase on its own as there are many factors causing high blood pressure and most common cause of high bp is primary hypertension for which ther is noa etiology. just get your blood pressure checked by a doctor thrice before starting medications.
