In brief: Worrisome

This is a worrisome but not emergent level of high blood pressure.
Removing controllable aggravating factors like salty foods,added salt,caffeine,nicotine would be wise as well as a formal doctors visit.High blood pressure is a stealth killer, triggering subtle changes in kidney function over time as well as other changes. Don't assume its just transient stress.
