Hi there, thanks for asking. You should worry despite you feel great. Some people who have elevated blood pressure may feel comfortable since their body has got used to high blood pressure. However, it would be harmful for the organs. Your should tell your doctor and it should be regulated at least at 145/85 or under. If you have renal problem or diabetes, it should be regulated under 135/80. I wish you a good health.
