Thank you for your query.

Though your blood pressure is very high and you have not mentioned your age I suggest that you get an electrocardiogram (ECG) done. ECG will let us know if you had angina or even a heart attack.

I hope you are on medication for your high blood pressure and have got a baseline cardiology work up done. If not then you should get your cardiology work up done. You should consult your doctor and start anti-hypertensive medication.

I hope I have answered your query to your satisfaction.

Wishing you all the best.
