Call 911. It may be signs of a heart attack. Another possibility is the blood clot in the lungs. It may be something else, but better to be safe and have him seen asap by a doctor.

You need to see a health care provider for an accurate assessment of your blood pressure and the symptoms that are causing you concern.
