In brief: This

This degree of blood pressure elevation is quite mild.
Many people have readings that are much higher than this but are completely unaware of it. That is why high blood pressure is often called a silent killer. If you are symptomatic from your high blood pressure, then in some cases seeking urgent attention may be necessary. If your blood pressure is mildly elevated, as it is in this case, then this can be managed by your provider in the office.
