Re: is this high??

That is actually in the normal range which doctors now call "pre-hypertensive".
Doctors put patiants on BP meds when the patiant's BP is 140/90 or more at rest.

Were you relaxed (emotionally and physically) while measureing your BP? If so, then right now, I would just evaluate your lifestyle and make some changes (more exercise, healthier foods).
