16 year old male with high blood pressure??

I was in my school nurse this morning due to feel nauseous. After I felt better, my blood pressure was tested four times. the first reading was 132 over 80. With a heart rate of 84 BPM. The second was higher with the same heart rate.(Not sure of exact answers) The 3rd had a suddenly and drastic drop. It went down to 100 over 70. All of this over the course of 30 minutes. High blood pressure runs in the family. Could this be the start of it? Or could there be another cause? Any and al help is deeply appreciated. Thank you.

hi well come to hcm.
BP records through out the day if you record cannot be constant.It varies in
narrow range as per your activity and stress. In your case there was a anxiety and
discomfort of nausea so intial systolic BP was on higher side than gradually over a
period of time came to normal.It can not be begining of hypertension as it came to
normal on its own.Thanks

My father has multiple myeloma. he s on his third month of the BiRD treatment right now with Revlmid, biaxin and dexamethazone. his BP has been low this week and tonight has dropped to 101/53. he s weak and can t keep his eyes open and has sever leg cramps. He s been fairly active since on the treatment since this particular regimen can cause blood clots. He s coherent and not dizzy at all. we can t get him to drink much, but we are thinking maybe the low bp is due to dehydration. we can t get ahold of his doctor or nurse right now. should we worry? is there anything we can do to make it come up?
