Thank you for all the information,
I am sorry for her symptoms.
Her blood pressure is high but not in crisis.

Her other symptoms like nausea, pulsing arteries need to be addressed.
Please keep her at rest.
I would suggest to take an examination by doctor.

An echo, ultrasound doppler of neck arteries would be helpful.
She would need adjustment of dose of blood pressure medicine.
She may need addition of new one.
I hope this information helps.
If there’s anything else I can do, please let me know.
Please rate my answer excellent if you are satisfied with it.
