Your BP is going perfect up till now but pulse is a bit higher today.However,as there are no other symptoms (like shortness of breath,dizziness ,sleepiness,chest pain etc.)there is no need to go hospital just for a raised pulse.Please keep in mind that your pulse should be under 100 .So just keep checking pulse every hour and take rest at home.If pulse increases like it reaches to 150 or 200 then there can be need to go hospital.
