Brief Answer: Details given Detailed Answer: Hello, Thanks for choosing health care magic for posting your query. I have gone through your question in detail and I can understand what you are going through. To be in the normal range, your blood pressure should be below 120/80 mmHg. Any value more than this is supposed to be abnormal and needs to be taken care of. Your heart rate should be in the range of 60-80 beats per minute. Anything above 80 caused by extra beats from the atria may be SVT and can be diagnosed on ECG. It has to be differentiated from other caues of tachycardia. Hope I am able to answer your concerns. If you have any further query, I would be glad to help you. If not, you may close the discussion and if possible you may rate the answer for me, so that I get a good feedback.
