Hello, welcome to HCM. Blood pressure is affected by many factors. It should be measured after sitting at rest for 15 minutes. Anxiety or stress both physical and mental can raise BP. Just 1 high reading doesnt signifiy much. You should regulalry monitor your blood pressure and in case you find it raised you should visit your doctor to get assessed. You can walk daily to keep it under check and reduce your salt intake. Wish you good health.
