You need to first understand few things about blood pressure.
Normal range of blood pressure is between 90/60 to 140/90, anything above or below is is abnormal.
Many factors can affect blood pressure, including:
1) The amount of water and salt you have in your body
2) The condition of your kidneys, nervous system, or blood vessels
3) Your hormone levels
4) your lifestyle - smoking, drinking, exercise
Stress, less sleep, smoking, alcohol, overweight, heart, kidney problems, lack of physical exercise. All of these can cause High blood pressure.
You are more likely to be told your blood pressure is too high as you get older. This is because your blood vessels become stiffer as you age. When that happens, your blood pressure goes up.
Highblood pressure increases your chance of having a stroke, heart attack, heart failure, kidney disease, or early death.
So my advice to you would be
1) Keep a BP record daily for at least one week & Every time you need to measure BP twice with a gap of 15 mins rest.
2) Basic tests should be one to rule out cardiac / kidney issues & find if there is any treatable cause of High blood pressure
3) unless any recent evaluation has been done I would advice these test
Get back to me with a detailed history and old / new records For Now Keep taking the same medicines which you are taking .plus
