From time to time one's blood pressure can be above normal (like when you are upset or have pain or feel stressed) a better way to look at it is to take your BP daily more or less the same time and then work out the average above and below. If the average is above normal you may need to consider taking medication. What I think you should do is to try and identify the cause of the tight feelings of your chest - does it have a relationship with food or drink, how do you feel when it happens, what are you doing when this happens (exercise related?). If your wife puts her ear on your chest does she hear "wheezing" sounds? For how long does such an attack persist?
