Blood pressure is never constant it keeps on changing as per physical work and oxygen demand of the heart.When you are physically excersissing it gets elevated and the elevation is stress induced too.Regular check up is required to make sure that you are hypertensive or hypotensive.Regular hypertensives need definite treatment to avoid problems like left ventricular hypertrophy and furthe worstning to cardiac arrest etc.
