It can't wait until later this week. High blood pressure is considered a medical emergency, and you need to get a ride to the nearest emergency room now. High blood pressure can cause strokes and death. If you are already on medication, call your doctor's phone number and they may tell you to take another dose. I am a nurse, and I've seen people in their 30's and 40's in a coma from not taking their meds right. Take this seriously, and keep a check on it. Also, lay off the caffeine, if any.
