Is my BP level normal?

I would explain that a single high blood pressure value and high heart rate value could be related to anxiety and does not indicate any serious medical disorder.

For this reason, I would recommend you to closely monitor your heart rate and blood pressure values in the next days.

If high blood pressure values persist, I would recommend performing some other tests:
- a resting ECG
- complete blood count, PCR, ESR for inflammation
- thyroid hormone levels for thyroid gland dysfunction
- blood electrolytes
- fasting glucose
- kidney and liver function tests.

You should discuss with your doctor on the above tests.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Hi: in 2007 I had an EKG that showed normal sinus rhythm rate 55 but borderline left atrial abnormality RSR in V1 or V2. The doctor said this was an essentially normal result for me. At the time I was 33 yrs old 100/70 blood pressure and pulse of 52 and regular, no medication, and very active. Should I be worried?
