    Blood pressure question?

    I did my blood pressure using one of the free testers at the doctors. First my HR was 108bpm with a reading of 143/74. I knew I was anxious and tense so I waited another 10 minutes and did it again. This time it was 124/81 with HR of 84.

    I am quite confused at how the 71 raised to 81. I've looked at charts and this says I have pre high blood pressure which is freaking me out. Does this mean I am at risk of heart problems?

    To me it just sounds like you were anxious, it takes a good long while for mine to come down outside of a stressful situation.

    Positive vibes,
