Heart Rate Low, Very Very High Blood Pressure, When Heart Rate High, Normal Blood Pressure, Help !

tuesday, wednesday and thursday, very high blood pressure and low pulse rate.

Friday, Saturday and Sunday : Ranged from normal to a little high but a higher pulse rate.

I have been to the dr, he did a couple of tests, but will see him for follow up on the 3rd.

Hi, I need help ! I have a heart rate of 205/105 when I am at work, with a heart rate of 60. But on the weekend it my blood pressure returns to normal and my heart rate rises to 78, how can this be?? Should as my heart rate go up so should my blood pressure, but its the opposite, any ideas as to what could be causing this, I love my job, a little stressful, but I enjoy it. Help !!!!

Answer

Hi Ryan,

I interviewed Dr. Mark Houston earlier this year and he touched on the connection between blood pressure and heart rate. Typically as blood pressure rises heart rate decreases and vice versa. Here's a link to the interview - http://www.healthcentral.com/heart-disease/c/45112/103401/questions I believe it's question 4 or 5 that addresses this.

All the best,
