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.
