High blood pressure

Good day
I am struggling with my blood pressure for the last few weeks. It was:
30/09/2008 16:16 121/91
16/09/2008 17:05 144/86
16/09/2008 17:00 146/94
02/09/2008 16:56 144/90
16/08/2008 9:19 128/83
26/07/2008 10:59 140/86
21/06/2008 10:34 131/76
22/05/2008 17:33 127/77
30/03/2008 8:23 119/75
19/02/2008 18:25 121/72
01/01/2008 11:42 115/78
01/01/2008 10:37 125/75
13/10/2007 16:34 132/76
18/08/2007 11:45 122/76
What I need to know, is should I be worried. Should I visit the doctor?

Dear concerned
Your average is 130/80 which is slightly higher than normal - you probably don't need medication unless you have other risk factors like high cholesterol, gout, diabetes or obesity.
If the top average is over 140 and below over 90 you need to go onto a blood pressure tablet
