I always have been hypertensive. Readings as high as 180/100 to 125/85.

Recently I had 2 episodes where my pulse jumped to 119 and I had to lay down and it would return to normal after 30 minutes or so. But now I am also noticing my pulse is higher in general between 90 - 100 but my resting blood pressure has dropped to 105/77. Thats abnormally low for me.

Whats funny my cardiologist wanted me oh bystolic and I refused because he wanted my pressure to go down. Now I haven't done a thing and it's lower but my pulse is racing.

Is 90-100 that high of a pulse? According to this anything under 100 is a normal resting heart rate. Unless it have usually have a lower rate. Heart rate: What's normal? - MayoClinic.com

Myself I find my rate can vary. When I am relaxed It can be as low as 55. A result from being a fairly serious athlete for half my life so far. Need to try to keep that up. At the same time just a little bit of stress (not exercise) and my rate goes up into the 90s.

Anyway if you feel anything is wrong see your doctor or get a second opinion if you already had. But in general 90-100 is not a "high pulse"
