Hello

that blood pressure is not dangerous.l

I am Dr. Thomas, a double board certified US doctor.

It is, however, high.

You need to keep a log and see your doctor.

The doctor will want you to continue keeping the log.

If you have symptoms, such as a headache, etc. Then go to urgent care.

OK, so you might have more questions or want to give me more information: Please use reply to expert if you have further questions.
