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

This is very high BP.

Even though there may be some anxiety component, there can be other underlying causes as well.

Kidney failure, heart disease, hormonal disorder are common causes.

Such high BP can cause stroke, heart problem and even othe organ damages.

Hence, you will need to go to the ER for further evaluation.

You should be started on a BP lowering medication and then follow up with your doctor by next week.

Please follow a low sodium diet as sodium causes high BP.
Best wishes,
It was my pleasure to help you today.
