Answer

Hi haysh,

Here is some literature that you might find helpful.

Blood pressure numbers (scroll down to see the blood pressure chart)

Blood pressure and heart rate

I encourage you to make an appointment with your physician to determine if you are hypertensive since your bottom number is elevated

Best of luck,
