Should I be worried?

My glucose count is usually around the 90's (not fasting). About a month ago I went to the ER with bad headaches. They did a blood test and I just found out that my glucose was 141. That seems high to me but they never said anything about it (I wasn't fasting). Is that diabetic range? Should I be concerned about having diabetes? It seems odd to me that a year ago it was in the 90's but a month ago it was 141.
I had a complete blood work done last week (after fasting) so I'll see what it is when I get the results. I was just wondering what is considered Diabetes range.

Some other symptoms I have is itching, tired all the time and my legs ache feet feel tingly. But I'm not thirsty all the time or go to the bathroom all the time and I just had my eyes checked and had little change from three years ago.

It is not unusual to have a non-fasting level of 141. It is also not unusual to have a high blood glucose level if you are in pain or stressed.
I am not diabetic but my levels have increased over the years and my father had diabetes II, so I keep an eye on myself. I test at home, watch my diet and exercise. Google "Normal Blood Glucose Levels" and you will find all kinds of helpful information.
