If your blood pressure has been running low and heart rate high for a while, then that is probably your baseline. It varies for everyone. If these values are abnormal for you personally, then maybe you are dehydrated. This can lower the amount of blood in your body. Hence making your heart pump and work harder in order to get blood flow and vital oxygen to your organs and tissue.
