Can high blood pressure cause sinus tachycardia ?

Can high blood pressure caused by stress result in a constant sinus tachycardia? Or is it the other way round? In April I was diagnosed with Sinus Tachycardia with a very high blood pressure. I am on beta blockers now but it doesn t always work, my blood pressure can fluctuate but my heart rate can still race. I also get anxiety alongside some Chronic Fatigue like symptoms (tingling, pins and needles, visual probs, muscle pain etc) Also, can constant anxiety cause chronic sinus tachycardia? (I ve been tested blood wise and they only conclusion the doctor has is either chronic faituge syndrome or anxiety or both)

I get severe shortness of breath, dizziness, and shaky during showering and I don t know if it s related to blood pressure changes or heart issues. I just showered and had to sit down in the middle of washing my hair because i felt as if i would faint otherwise. I had a history of sinus tachycardia that i was on atenolol for three years ago that was caused by anorexia nervosa but i spent a year in eating disorder treatment, gained weight, and it got better on its own so my cardiologist took me off the meds and said i no longer need to see him. I checked my heart rate as i was just sitting on the floor of my shower and my heart was racing faster than i could count. Could sinus tachycardia be coming back even though I m much healthier and medically stable now? My bp is always normal when i get it checked now and my average resting heart rate can generally range anywhere from 70-100bpm. I m 30 years old.

I have been having heart palpitations at night for the past 2 weeks that wake me up out of my sleep. For the past 2 weeks I have been living on no sleep because of this and it is miserable. I have had anxiety issues in the past, but I really feel as though this is different. When sleeping I kind of feel like I "forget to breathe" and get a heart palpitation just when I'm about to doze off. I had heart palpitations 2 years ago and went to a cardiologist in which the doctor did many tests and found nothing abnormal. I have competed in athletics my entire life and am a seemingly healthy 23 year old female.

For the past few days I have had heart palpatations, sore arm, chest pain, and pains in my legs alongside numbness in my arm. Is this just an anxiety attack? I had a hemotoma in my leg and was petrified they were linked, but each time I showed the doctors they didn't seem to think this was a possibility. I just need reassurance that it is only anxiety.
