I would explain that the headaches seem to be related to high blood pressure values.

For this reason, the main thing to do is to treat high blood pressure.

For this reason, I would recommend consulting with your attending physician and discussing the possibility of starting antihypertensive therapy.

Some blood lab tests are also necessary (complete blood count, PCR, ESR, thyroid hormone levels, fasting glucose, blood lipid profile, kidney and liver function tests).

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