It's normal to feel a little anxious if you've just got your blood pressure and heart rate tests back, and I hope I can provide a bit of medical information.

So, to start off, this question can be broken down into two important parts:

What is a normal blood pressure level?

The ideal blood pressure is 120/80, so your is just off that. Anyone above 120/80 should be aiming to bring their blood pressure down through a healthy lifestyle.

However, based on your reading I wouldn't say you have a major concern right now, as people can fluctuate up to 140/90

Anything higher than that would certainly be of serious concern.

What is a normal heart-rate?

Heart rates vary too. A normal heart rate is between 60 and 100 beats per minute, and the higher on the scale you are, the more concerned a medical professional would be.

Your heart rate of 140 is fairly high, so I would seek medical attention as there are a number of underlying causes that could be involved.

It would be reckless to seek any more information online about your underlying condition, as the honest truth is no-one can make a further diagnosis without seeing you and examining you properly.

Normal blood pressure is between 90 and 120, and a bottom number that's between 60 and 80.
In case of heart rate generally for adults ranges from 60 to 100 beats a minute.
