It is not unusual, over the course of a day, to have fluctuations in your blood pressure. It is also not uncommon to have your blood pressure rise when you are worried or anxious. I think that is what is going on with you. You were feeling anxious, your blood pressure was elevated and that made you more anxious. Therefore, your blood pressure went even higher. The reading of 95/55 is nothing to worry about. Low blood pressure is generally only worrisome when you are symptomatic- such as lightheaded, dizzy, etc. Continue with your appointment for your echo and discuss your concerns about your blood pressure with your cardiologist when he/she reviews your echo with him. Good luck.
