You don't say what you are/were doing when you checked it. Many things can affect BP and HR. Doctors are concerned only with your resting BP and HR. Any activity, excitement, anxiety
does make the heart pump faster (HR) and harder (BP). The amount and duration determines how much the increase is. Certain medications, supplements and herbs can cause an increase as well. So does smoking
, alcohol, exposure to hot or cold
environments, meals, illness, etc.
