Are high blood pressure and high pulse rate linked?

Q: Do high blood pressure and a high pulse rate go hand in hand? Or are they different problems?

A: High blood pressure and a fast heart beat, or pulse, don’t necessarily go together. Fever is a common cause of tachycardia, a pulse rate greater than 100. On the other hand, a high resting pulse can be a sign of not getting enough exercise and lack of exercise is a risk factor for getting high blood pressure. The normal range for the pulse in an adult is 60 to 100. Your pulse increases with activity and decreases with rest.
