High BP -- Kinda Worried
« on: August 17, 2014, 01:36:30 PM »
I just checked my BP in a store. At one of those machines. I've used them before and always had normal readings, but it's been many years since I did. Well, it was 146/93. Heart rate was a normal 98. We had beeb walking around the store grocery shopping and I was pushing the cart, with a 5yr child child and several groceries (it wasn't the lightest in weight).

Is it normal for BP to rise that high after activity? Or should the body normally be aable to keep it very regulated?

Yes it is normal for BP to rise with activity especially anything including weights. One reading does not mean you have high BP. Don't be too worried. As others have said try again when not doing much activity.

I didn't really make the connection between the reading and the fact that I was physically active until after I posted. I looked it up and it's perfectly normal to go high after physical exertion. And having a 5yr old in the cart, I wad playing -- lifting the back of the cart with her weight and all. And while I don't just sit around doing nothing all day, I lack routine exercise and such. I'll keep an eye on it. But I believe that was the cause. I don't have any physical symptoms of routinely high BP, but I should probably watch it.  I'm 27, and with lack of regular exercise (which I plan to start), I believe I should be more aware than ignoring my health. Thank you both for the info. :-)
