The diastolic is so high that I advise you to go to the ER ...

This degree of elevation of your blood pressure is dangerously high ...

We don't know at this point the cause and that it could go even higher ..

This puts you at risk for damage to kidneys / heart / brain/ vision ...

You need to get medication for control and you need evaluation for this

I hope that this information is helpful for you

Let me know if you have further questions or concerns

I will be happy to get back with you

If my answer has been helpful and to your satisfaction then please remember to leave positive feedback

Thank you and Best Regards,
