No I do not think it is necessary for her to go to ER. Her pulse and blood pressure remain in normal range. There are many circumstances that may increase pulse pressure which she might be feeling. Of we are coming down with illness for example such as flu for example then you may commonly be more perceptive of your pulse. She could check in with her primary care doctor...a general check would be reasonable. Listening over heart...feeling her pulses .. Screening for infection ...possibly checking her complete blood count and thyroid function would make sense...

If her normal pulse was 70 and is now 90 then it could correspond with how she feels but would not be likely anything that urgent or serious.

So I agree it may be prudent for check up but I think it does not rise to need to go to ER...
