Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

Chest pain and high blood pressure like this should be evaluated soon.

You should go to the ER to rule out any underlying heart problem.

Stress should not cause such elevation in BP alone.
Best wishes,
It was my pleasure to help you today.
