my blood pressure is 167/120 and my heart rate is 91 is this normal?

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...YOU ARE VERY HYPERTENSIVE AND NEED TO GET CHECKED ASAP.

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.

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.

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