Hey Anonymous, First of all for your age and for one Blood Pressure reading we cannot diagnose that your Hypertensive(high BP). Most of the time when you go to doctors office your BP will become more its called White coat Hypertension which is nothing to worry. In your case it could also be for stress since you had hurt your shoulder. My advise to you is go enjoy six flag rides!!!
Please lemme know if you have any further questions or concerns.
Thanks for choosing health care magic.
