Thanks for your query,

Well the readings are not XXXXXXX needing no ER visit now, you can wait for one or two days recheck the parameters and then plan a visit.

Just try to avoid stressful conditions which can give you temporary readings ones not helping to asses your baseline values and the underlying conditions resulting in such readings.Do take rest and then get the parameters checked.

Hope I have answered your query. If you have any follow up queries I will be available to answer them.

I have a monitor here at home. I usually range pulse in the high 70s and high 130s over high 80s. I have Taken Bayer AM 3X today for headaches and generic Zyrtec-D. So is that maybe my fault?

Hi again,

Thanks for your follow up,

No , neither of the drugs you mentioned affect the BP and the heart rate.

The exact underlying cause can be made out once the pattern in the variation of the parameters is determined.I would advice you to remove the influences of stress and physical strain by avoiding heavy physical work and adopting relaxation exercises like meditation.

Wishing you good health.
