Hello,

Your high blood pressure values could be related to a possible infection. So, I would recommend having some rest and avoiding straining physical activity.

If you have a fever, consult with your GP for a physical exam and some blood lab tests (complete blood count, PCR, blood electrolytes), may be needed.

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

Take care

Regards,
Dr Ilir Sharka, Cardiologist
