You claim to have had high blood pressure for 5 years and have reported more than enough spikes to suggest that it may be persistently too high, even if you imagine you may be trolling.
This reading looks like a stress-spike.
If serious about your BP, and assuming your machine is calibrated, sit back in your chair and relax for 5 minutes, then take a BP reading. Relax for another 2 readings and take a second reading. Repeat this twice a day morning and mid evening, for a week. Average those readings and take them to show your doctor if you are persistently above 140/80. If it's well above that then make an urgent appointment.
You need to quit eating obscene amounts of junk food.
See your doctor if your medical condition concerns you.
Regard social media/internet advice as anecdotal.

That is a very high BP. You need to get to an emergency room immediately. If you haven't already had a stroke, you soon will.

Why in the hell would you eat 4 cheeseburgers in one sitting
