not necessarily... but in order to be diagnosed with hypertension (high blood pressure) you have to have three readings that are greater than 140/90. many things can cause your BP to go up, so your doc may just be waiting to see what type of readings you have in the future. you may want to try checking it yourself at the drug/grocery store once every week or two, if you find that it's regularly high then you do need treatment.
