Out of nowhere my blood pressure was higher than normal today 131/89. I have never suffered from high blood pressure. Am I going to suffer now?

In brief: Diagnosing high BP

One high blood pressure measurement does not mean you have hypertension.
Relax, and check it again when you are feeling comfortable and have been sitting quietly for at least 5 minutes.
