Be my internet doctor

Huh. Yesterday when I was giving blood they almost turned me away because my blood pressure was high (140/100). It's never been high before, and I give blood every couple of months or so. The last time I donated was in September, and it was 120/70.

Can this be because of stress? Does HBP come on suddenly?
