low blood pressure/rapid pulse

my blood pressure is currently 109/80 with a pulse rate of 130.  Is this a cause for concern?

Hi,
Your blood pressure is fine but the rapid pulse rate is definitely a cause of concern. I’ll suggest getting an ECG done and maybe a continuous 24 hr ECG recording (holter monitoring) to rule a rhythm disturbance of the heart. There’s a possibility of an underlying thyroid disease (thyrotoxicosis) to be the cause of the rapid heart or it could be due to anxiety only and the beta blockers are the drugs used for lowering the heart rate. Please do consult a cardiologist for the same. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
