Hi Dr Mo here, please give me a moment to reply.

Do you have any blood pressure meds you take regularly?

Those numbers aren’t high enough to be worried about, nothing dangerous will happen.

I’m assuming you aren’t having any chest pain?

Not a cold
Expert:  Dr. Ashori replied 3 months ago.

I see, that’s okay, that shouldn’t change anything.

Are you taking any over the counter medicines that may have raised your blood pressure?
