Thanks for your query,
you have Elevated blood pressure 160/110 that needs work up.
First you measure your blood pressure for a week on different time if it remains more than 150/90 in most of readings then you need to take medicines for it on regular bases.
Your leg vein explode has no relation to your high pressure but it needs work up.
