YES - see Dr / but not emergency

Detailed Answer:
Hi friend
Welcome to Health Care Magic

The range for the upper figure (Systolic) is 90 to 140 mm Hg.
The range for the lower figure (Diastolic) is 60 to 90 mm Hg.
130 will be good for the upper figure / 80 for the lower figure…

Check it again. See your doctor. Start treatment.
The aim is to prevent long term complications.

You need treatment
But, it is NOT an emergency / no need to rush to ER / ask for an appointment and see your doctor

Good luck
God bless you
