    Your diastolic pressure is 120 mm Hg. It may cause heart attack, stroke or kidney failure. Get admission to the hospital immediately.

    You could live with a HR of 91, but 167/120 is literally crazy high. It is not (yet) clinically a hypertensive crisis, but it isn't far away. A BP like that is a one way street to heart problems, & heart problems are a 1 way street to death.

    Did you get this reading from a battery operated cuff? This may be a bogus reading. You need a clinician to take your BP with a steth & a manual cuff.

    Also: do yourself a favor; if someone on YA tells you that thgis sky high BP is due to "dehydration & not enough salt", IGNORE that advice!

    No both your systolic and your diastolic are way too high. And unless you're exercising the beat is also high. 130/80 and 72 are good numbers on average.

      "130/80 and 72 are good numbers on average." 130 is hypertensive & 130/70 is a pulse pressure of 50 (with 40 being a normal pulse pressure)--hardly good "on average". The best suggestion I can give to you is refrain from giving medical advice.

    If these are resting numbers, they are not normal. 167 is high. 120 is extremely high. 91 is just above the top end of the normal range.

      A HR under 60 is clinically bradycardia; a HR over 100 is clinically tachycardia.  60 to 100 BPM is considered within normal limits.

    If your bottom number is seriously 120, you should go to the ER... like, now.

      I deleted my answer in favor of this one.  Alexander is right. Your numbers indicate you need an emergency response.
