this blood pressure is very high and over time can be dangerous

anxiety, migraines, pain, salt intake, can all increase blood pressure very high.

you should continue to check your blood pressure once or twice a day

and see your doctor about these levels

and see if you need to be started on blood pressure medications to help lower your pressure.
