A normal blood pressure is around 120/80. A blood pressure of 139/104 is abnormal and may even be dangerous if you are experiencing any of the symptoms of high blood pressure
. Since you are already taking your blood pressure, I would assume that you are having issues with hypertension.
Anxiety can raise your blood pressure but I would not make an assumption that this is "just your anxiety". I would like you to sit down for 15 minutes and rest and take your blood pressure again.
If it is still > 150 (systolic) or > 80 diastolic, you need to call your physician for an appointment. If you are experiencing a high blood pressure and any of these symptoms such as severe headache
, blurred vision
, double vision
, vomiting or abdominal pain
go to your nearest ER.
IF you continue to have chest pain, it may be your anxiety, however, you
need to have a full workup on your heart.
Be well, Dr. Kimberly
