hello,
Welcome To Health Care Magic,
normal blood pressure ranges to-120/80+ or -10 mmHg.
There may be diurnal variations.Blood pressure measured after excercise or after eating will be high .
U have not mentioned your age.Blood pressure is usually high in old age and may be near 140/90mmHg.
You have to consult your doctor for this increased blood pressure.Its not to worry about.Some medicines and bit of precautions and you will be fine.
Take care

Hi! i am 30 years old and have anxiety. Recently I made the poor decision to go off meds to beat it myself. I work out six hours a week in a gym. I run a 3k three times a week and I eat based on the dash diet. starting a week ago I noticed my blood pressure was high. I ve kept checking it and it typically runs systolic between 133-142. I ve had spikes as high as 149. My diastolic is fine. It rarely if ever goes above 80 and usually is under. I have been nervous for weeks now and I m more nervous then ever now that I have high bp. Could the high BP be a result of my anxiety? I have heart problems in my family and my father has high bp. This is why I workout and try to eat healthy. How worried should I be? Can i still workout if my bp is that high? I go to the doctor on Thursday to get back on meds. Should i ask to check for hypertension?
