Wow, your blood pressure is way too high. It is strongly suspected that your high blood pressure is caused by an underlying medical condition, especially kidney problems such as renal artery stenosis or chronic kidney disease. You should see a cardiologist or a nephrologist to get you carefully and comprehensively examined to find out whether your blood pressure is caused by other conditions.
Your blood pressure is too high. Normal systolic blood pressure is between 90 and 139, and diastolic blood pressure is between 60 and 89. You need to take some time off to remeasure your blood pressure. If the blood pressure is still so high, you need to go to the emergency room as soon as possible.
