You don't say what you are/were doing when you checked it. Many things can affect BP and HR. Doctors are concerned only with your resting BP and HR. Any activity, excitement, anxiety or stress does make the heart pump faster (HR) and harder (BP). The amount and duration determines how much the increase is. Certain medications, supplements and herbs can cause an increase as well. So does smoking, alcohol, exposure to hot or cold environments, meals, illness, etc. For more info see my website. There you can find basic info and links to more in depth information. Here is the link: http://medilink-healthlink.tripod.com/... I hope you visit my site just to learn.

I m 27 and my blood pressure was 150 over 100 with a heart rate of 156. I had just walked into the living room from another room, wasn t really stressed or excited. My pulse has been getting higher and higher for months now. (About a year ago, it was at 110 and before that it was 80-100 normally.) My blood pressure is normally fairly low. Is there something wrong with me?

I am 33, 5 7 around 130 lbs. I have developed severe headaches after started ADHD treatment with Stimulants. My pulse and blood pressure are elevated yet normal. I have had EEG, MRI, CT Scan, everything is normal. The pain radiates from the bridge of left side of my nose and is everyday. The pain persists even after stopping the Stimulants. However my pulse rate and blood pressure are still elevated. Could the cause be related to BP or pulse rate? Triptans did not stop the headaches. On preventative Elavil, Mobic, and recently added low dose of Blood Pressure med. My normal heart rate is around 55, currently running 75-95 beats/min. This has lasted over 6 months.

Dear colleaggues, I'm Ingrid Hilman, MD, 58 years. had my stenting on 17 Feb, 3 stents in LAD and RCA.

Since 2 weeks ago, I develop severe headaches, esp during the iningt or when I wake up in the morning and also palpitation (heart rate > 90). I feel weak during palpitation. I do not have hypertension (my BP is between 90-110 and 70-80). I do not have obesity, smoking habits, my lab is pretty good only LDL 100.

Is this because of the herbresser that I take 3 times a day?

Other drug that I take;

- Aspirin 1 x 100 mg

- Plavix 1 x 75 mg

- Lipitor 1 x 10 mg.

Appreciate your inputs on my above complaints. Thank you very much

I am a 25 yr old female that has recently lost 70 pounds and suffers from pcos. I am off all the bp medicines I was taking, and have been on a gluten free diet since 4/21/11 b/c I am allergic to wheat. I have been getting dizzy, lightheaded, and have a fast heart rate and low blood pressure when standing or sitting up. my heart rate is usually in the 60 -70 range when resting, and it's been in the high 90 - 100 range while resting. The dizziness started Sunday 6/19/11 all of a sudden, and I have kept track of my BP and symptoms since Sunday. I get this intense pressure in my head, and the get dizzy, and my heart will race when I start to feel yucky, I have trouble breathing, when my heart rate is up this high for no apparent reason. My BP will be 93/62 and HR 101 standing, or it can be 114/65 and HR 80 a few minutes later.. but if I go from lying down to sitting, it will be elevated, then it elevates when I stand, if I lay down everything is fine.. the pressure in my head goes away, the dizzyness goes away, and the HR goes back to normal... I have a shunt in place for hydrocephalus, my first shunt was placed at the age of two weeks, and first revision was done 4/5/2010. I want to know what is causing this fluctuation in BP and the dizziness, and fast HR...thanks
