If this is your normal bp I'd say its on the high side and yes you can get out of breath. Another sign is a headache or dizziness but people with high bp sometimes never even know it until its been diagnosed. If you are checking your bp at the local walgreens on one of those machines be aware that they are not acurate at all. The best thing you can do is to have your bp checked by a doctor regularly to see if it stays high and if so they will treat you. High BP is nothing to mess with! Good luck!
