In brief: Stress, BP

mental stress will raise BP, persistent anxiety about BP will also raise it.
This is akin to the Heisenberg uncertainty principle in physics whereby the act of measuring something directly alters the property that one is attempting to measure.the numbers reported above are perfectly normal
