It's not from anxiety. Your blood pressure flucuates from one minute to the next. It changes constantly through out the day. Nothing to be alarmed about. Anxiety can make your blood pressure go up though, I am just saying that your readings are normal to be the way that they are.

I was feeling very relaxed last night and mine was 99/53.  After I went out and got some dinner, it was 119/57.  tostressed is right.  Blood pressure changes from second to second and as long as it stays in the "safe" range, you're fine.  Your readings are very good.  Excellent.  Anxiety can make it go up, but it will come back down once the anxiety is over.  Mine goes up a little at the doctor, not because I'm scared, but because I feel impatient there.  A higher reading now and then won't hurt you, the readings you've told us about are great.  Don't be concerned over it.  Just eat healthy and exercise and try to keep your good health all your life.  Don't worry! :)

Oh, if you're taking your own blood pressure, you need to wait at least five minutes after taking it before you take it again in order to get an accurate reading.  You mentioned you "took it again right after."  If that's immediately after, you need to wait at least five minutes (I wait ten) in order to get an accurate reading.  But don't worry.  Your blood pressure is fine and you're too young to let your life be consumed with worry over something that's good.
