Don't fret if it was just a single episode. You can check your blood pressure daily for a week (see if there is a pharmacy near you that has a clinic where you can go for daily measurements) If the average over a week is above 140 at the top and above 90 at the bottom, it needs attention - further examinations and possibly treatment.
