90 is normal: When you are out and about your body needs more energy, needs more blood flow. The cardiac output is increased by increasing the heart rate. Stimulants: caffeine, nicotine contribute too.

EKG afib: An ekg can diagnose afib. There are many different abnormalities that can be seen. Abnormal does not equal a fib.

Care for you: Don't smoke. Maintain healthy weight. Go to aha website and learn about low salt diet. Part is not your fault. High BP at your age is often inherited. I bet you know family members who died too soon. You can change that by caring for yourself and keeping a normal bp. If this is not possible with advice above then start meds. Your np should be less than 135 on top. Good luck.
