I don't think you should be worried as long as that is normal for you. Doctors now have changed the 120/80 rule and consider just under 120/80 to be normal. It varies from person to person and from day to day. I had mine checked and it was 110/60. A few days earlier it was 115/70. Your heart rate is slightly elevated but you may have been nervous, have just walked around or any number of things can bring your resting heart rate up to 87.

I m 58 and weigh 288. Height 5 4 . I started dieting 5 weeks ago and it s tough, but I am sticking with it. I am and have always been intolerant to summer heat. This morning I got too hot and could not get cooled down for hours. This morning my blood pressure was 121/74 and my pulse was 94. A high pulse has always been a problem. Tonight, after battling pouring sweats with cool to cold baths, my blood pressure is 158/98 and pulse 74. Should I be worried?
