Hello rajnigandha;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
The BP of 125/67 is perfectly normal and even the pulse is also normal no reason to get worried.At your age of 19 yrs it is fine.
Take care
Thanks

Few days back after breakfast, i had excessive sweating and very tired. Consulted a nearby doctor, my BP is little low and he told that take rest for 5 minutes and then go. Then it was ok.Yesterday I took an ECG. my heartbeat was 120. The doctor gave a tabled for 3 days and ask me to come again after completing the tablet. My age is 40. My blood sugar level was little high in few years back. Now it is 90 / 125.
