Hello and welcome to healthcare forum.
Blood pressure of 156/122 is definately considered as high and you are also having headache which is also a feature of hypertension. You should consult a physician for further work up and then treatment.
Best wishes for your health.

Hello. I am a final year medical student. My mum had her BP taken last week and it was 180/130. She bought a blood pressure monitor yesterday and it has been reading 220/150 relatively consistently since (normal BP readings on rest of family), she has no headache/visual problems. She has rang the doctors-on-call and the nurse told her to wait and see her normal GP in working hours (this means waiting 48 hours). I am worried about malignant hypertension - should I persuade her to go to A&E?
