Hi..
If there is sudden rise in blood pressure then it needs further evaluation like evaluation of heart and kidney function, also limit salt intake, high stress levels can be a cause..
You should consult an Emergency room and get evaluated..
An Ambulatory blood pressure monitoring should be done to see blood pressure fluctuations..
Immediate treatment should be done to avoid any complications..

Hope this helps..
