Q.

Why does my blood pressure go from 134 over 74 to 156 over 97 once and awhile.

I am a 51 year old female in good health.  My blood pressure is normal at times, but sometimes goes haywire.  My pluse rate when it is normal is around 79, but when it gets like I said 156 over 97 my pulse rate goes above 100.  What could be going on?
