Your BP is just above normal for your age.
But,recording of BP should not be done when there is pain.
You should be comfortable during BP recording.
If the BP recording is 140/92 continously for few days,then you have to consult your doctor.
A BP machine will be attached to your hand and it is measured regularly for 24 hrs and based on the readings,Hypertension can be diagnosed.
If you have any doubt,ask your doctor for this procedure and proceed accordingly.
Wish you good health
