WElcome to HCM.
130/93 blood pressure is called border line hypertension.
You have to change your life style to avoid medication in future.
Take good healthy diet with some salt restriction,Avoid stress,take proper sleep,go for exercise,yoga and pranayam.
Go for blood pressure measurement regularly at 10 to 15 days interval till it comes to 120/80 after changing your life style.
Also go for haemogram,lipid profile,ECG, and ECHO to rule out the swollen legs and palpitation.Consult your physician for further guidance.
