It's a normal physiology
BP and heart rate do increase with any stress
Don't worry it's under control
Adopt DASH

Hello.... With anxiety ,worry , tension blood pressure increases.. That's why one reading is not recommended ...check once more after one to two days... If it's consistently high consult general physician.... If not don't worry.... Whenever you go for checkup sit for few minutes and check.
