your blood pressure is not super bad yet your heart rate seems a bit high mine runs around 130bpm when im on the tredmill.


are these readings when your fully relaxed?


you should talk to a doctor and let them know about this rapid heart rate at a resting stage can be a problem , but i also had a fast heart rate while having anxiety attacks it would race while sitting for ahours but on the other hand your pressure isnt really all that bad compared to most people with pressure problems mine was 160/120 without medications and 130/90 to 145/110 with meds and i had a heart rate of about 100-110 and now its 75-85 after tredmill and medication
