Brief Answer:
Not serious, but there is a need for ECG

Detailed Answer:
Dear Sir,

There shouldn't be anything serious. But if you have same blood pressure and elevated heart rate now, I would advise you to refer to ER or see your doctor to perform an ECG and they will give you medication to slow down your heart rate, which will decrease your heart rate as well.

Hope I could help you

Wishing you good health
