Hello and hope you are doing well.

Normal Blood pressure range is Systolic BP: 90-139 mmHg and Diastolic BP: 60-89 mmHg. If values are persistently raised, then it is termed as hypertension and needs therapy.

The values can be raised due to pain. Acute pain increases blood pressure by increasing sympathetic activity. If with movement you are getting chest pain it is likely to be an inflammation of the skin, subcutaneous tissue or the bone. This can happen with injury, repetitive activity or an infection of the skin. Sometimes it can be costochondritis, inflammation of the sterna rib junction. If the pain is aggravated with work or exercise then it could be due to cardiac pain. But when in doubt always best to have it checked. So please consult your primary care physician who may ask for an EKG or a treadmill test to rule out a cardiac cause for the pain.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
