is a blood pressure reading 120/78 with a pulse at
dome times 12/75 or with a pulse of 75 -60
I would explain as follows:
Welcome and thank you for asking on Ask a Doctor service!
Regarding your concern, I would explain that your blood pressure values are perfectly normal.
A pulse of 100bpm is a little high, but it is quite reasonable during physical activity or anxiety.
So, in my opinion there is nothing to worry about !
In case of a persistent high heart rate, I would recommend performing some tests to investigate for possible causes:
- a resting ECG
- complete blood count for anaemia
- thyroid hormone levels for thyroid gland dysfunction
- blood electrolytes for possible imbalances.
Hope you will find this answer helpful!
In the meantime, I would recommend avoiding caffeine intake and energy drinks, which can increase your heart rate.
