Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, Experienced Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.
Do you have history of high blood pressure?
Are you on any medication for blood pressure?
if you do not have any symptoms like chest pain, shortness of breath, dizziness, then you can retake your blood pressure after half an hour of rest to sere if it is coming down.
However it is better to go to the ER if you experience any of the above symptoms to rule out stroke, heart attack.
If the blood pressure gets even higher, that also warrants a ER visit.
Thank you for sharing your concerns with us today. If you have any additional questions or need further clarifications, please do not hesitate to ask. I am here to answer them. I wish you good health. Regards, ***** *****
