Brief Answer:
Needs immediate medical attention

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.

I have gone carefully through your query. There is reason to be concerned and you need to see a doctor at the earliest. It seems that your blood pressure is fluctuating. Unless controlled with proper and regular medication it could give rise to serious complications like cerebrovascular accident or stroke.

Let me know if I could help further.
