Why would a doctor make me get a ECG?

Please help me.....I am in shambles. I went to get my yearly physical today. The doctor the did usual, checked my blood pressure , listened to my heart and so on and so forth. He told me that my blood pressure was elevated (134/94). My BP has never been elevated until now. He talked about the South Beach diet and then sent me to do my labs. While waiting to do my labwork the ECG tech came and got me and told me to strip from the waist up and she started to attached these little stickers to my chest . The interpretation came out and she sent me on my way. I m assuming that it was because of my BP being elevated. Anybody that has experienced this or knows about it please let me know.

It is nothing you were nervous every one has this problem in annual. Relax and take it easy. Since you have not mentioned your age it's difficult to tell. If you are between 20 to 26 the readings are normals in excitement. Even elderly woman and male feel the same. The BP will come down.
