What is considered High Pulse Rate

I have high blood pressure that fluctuate from 170/66 pulse 77 other times 207/102 pulse 107.  My main concern at this time is whether my pulse from 104-108 is something to be concerned with? I am presently taking medication (Lotrel & Diovan) for my high blood pressure, for approximately 5 years it's under contol (113/77) a little higher at times but not by much (120/75).  However recently I've been noticing my pulse rate 104-107 at rest, when I wake up in the morning or just sitting watching TV, with a normal blood pressure reading.  I am wondering should I be concerned about my pulse rate or is that a normal pulse rate.  I'm thin (118, 5' and 55 years old).

Please advise whether I should consult a physician or if there isn't anything to worry about.

Thank you

Since your blood pressure seems to be under control with medication the tachycardia that you are experiencing could be attributable to several causes including reaction to medications, fluid or electrolyte imbalances, excess caffeine or other stimulants.  Normal pulse rates range from 70-90 beats per minute with 72 being ideal. General health conditions; physical exercise and conditioning, diet and many other factors can influence resting pulse rate but  if the elevated pulse continues, spontaneously, then certainly I would consult your doctor to identify the cause and make the necessary adjustments to medications or otherwise treat the problem.

I have generally blood pressure  readings considered normal.I am 79,
my problem is waking up around midnight every night and my head hurting from a throbbing, which I attribute to my puls rate although it rarely reaches above 100. I took blood pressure pills for 5 months with no relief. I was diagnosed with acute gastritis of the stomach lining, biopsies of
the esophagus and colon proved benign. I feel that no medication helped me. Any help for me?
