Hello Maam

After going through the medical details provided by you i would like to tell you that the blood pressure reading which you have mentioned here are just slightly high considering your age group.

There is nothing to worry for and no need to go to hospital because of this reading. The normal recommended bp range for your age group is <150/90 mmHg.

Its advisable that you should start monitoring your bp daily at same time for one week. If it stays below or near normal or just slightly higher than the recommended range (as it is now), then we can start you you on a low dose of some antihypertensives.

And for the gas problem you can take some proton pump inhibitors like Pantoprazole 40mg before breakfast daily for 10 days.

Just relax.

Kind Regards
