Tic disorder and high blood pressure

Hi there.  I have had tic disorder for about 7 years now.  It comes and it goes, sometimes worse than other times.  I also have very painful sharp pains in my heart, although tests have shown nothing wrong with my heart.  At my last appointment with the movement disorder specialist, they said I have high blood pressure and I should get it checked out.  I went to see my family doctor about a week later, when I wasn't experiencing tics, and they said my blood pressure was low.   Today I went to see the movement disorder specialist again, and I am twitching big time, and they said my blood pressure is high again.  Is there a correlation?  Since my heart is a muscle, are my tics making my heart freak out?  Or is high blood pressure causing my tics?  Is this a common effect of tic disorder?
