Hello there. I can understand your concern.
I'm assuming that you are using a electronic blood pressure measuring device.
If yes, then it's not advised to make any conclusions based on those.
Get your blood pressure checked out regularly by a physician .
Have a salt restricted diet . that will help in reducing blood pressure.
Best regards.
Dr. Anil Kumar Jain.
