Doctor: Hi.I can understand how it would be to have persistence elevated BP.I am sure that you must have undergone all th e tests related to this problem.I would suggest you some tests, if not already done:Color doppler of the renal arteriesTests for Pheochromocytoma and such disorders that cause BP problems.Low salt dietStress and anxiety should be in control to have good BP controlNow: you pulse rate rises if the BP comes down and this happens in all the patients.
