Hi Anon

You need to talk to your doctor about your blood pressure, especially if you are also experiencing chest pain. You can read more about high blood pressure and the reason it can happen here: http://www.empowher.com/condition/high-blood-pressure

Anytime a person has high BP and chest pain, they need to call their doctor as soon as possible.

Hi again Anon!

It's up to you if you feel you can wait another two days but our general recommendation is that this isn't a good idea. If you like you can call today to see if there are any cancellations in the next two days and explain your situation. See if they think coming in now is a better idea or if a two day wait is ok. Better to be safe than sorry so at least call.

Our best to you,
