This is Dr. David

your blood pressure is dangerously high.

you need to see a doctor right away, either tonight or tomorrow about this very high blood pressure.

this is at a level of hypertensive emergency.

high blood pressure like this can damage your kidneys or other organs over a period of time.

most doctors would tell you to go to the ER tonight to see a doctor and get medications to help bring down your blood pressure.

this is very serious
