Hello,

I recommend doing some routine blood tests, and to visit a cardiologist to rule out any possible cardiac problem. Meanwhile, do not give the medications for high BP with these values of BP.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Anila Skenderi, General & Family Physician
