Hello .. madam..
welcome to HCM
as per ur records it suggest that u have High Blood Pressure and u need medication.
again if u have recorded ur BP with Automatic BP Recorder, which is said to be less accurate,
its always better to consult ur physician for examination and medication. any how if i consider ur records are correct u should start medication along with life style modifications, like avoid oil/salt/non-vegetarian and regular exercise, yoga, pranayama etc.
wish u healthy heart..
Take care
