Detailed answer...
Hello,
Thanks for the query.
I have read your query and understand your concern.
If you are already a known case of high blood pressure and taking your medicines for it,then I would advise you to take a dose of medicine in addition and consult your doctor for revision of your prescription.
In case you have been diagnosed with high blood  pressure for the first time,then you should go to the ER,even if you don't have any symptom.
I hope it helps however you are most welcome to revert to me for any further query.
Best of luck
Thanks
