Brief Answer:
Need more information...

Detailed Answer:

Blood pressure of 150/100 though high is usually well managed with antihypertensive medications. If she has just started medicines now, watch her pressure regularly say once a day/alternative day; if blood pressure continues to be the same even after 2 weeks, you can report back to your doctor for changes.

As far as weakness while walking is concerned, I don't think is it related to high blood pressure. Please provide additional details for further comments on this topic. I would like you to share with me the following details:
1. Since when did you notice this weakness?
2. With weakness do you mean she has difficulties with walking?
3. Does she report pain?
4. Is the symptoms constantly present or does it gradually develop as she walks?
5. Is this problem isolated to one limbs / both?

I would like these details initially to discuss further.

Awaiting your reply...

Brief Answer:
need clarification...

Detailed Answer:

You have reported contrasting symptoms; initial query you reported weakness while walking but in the second part you say there is no difficulty in walking. Since this alone is your wife's problem, please clarify/elaborate her complaints.
