High BP post quit smoking
It has been 3 weeks since I last smoked a cigarette. I smoked for 5 years , 5-6 cigarettes a day. I took my bp two times in the last one week. It has been consistent at consistent around 140/82. Is this hypertension stage or a withdrawal symptom of smoking cessation? Please advise.
