Blood pressure: It seems obvious that you are under a blood pressure problem. Your medicine may have to be adjusted . Your cholesterol has to be controlled. Ask your urologist what is about the results of the kidneys exams. Sometimes rapid pulse is compensatory to a heart condition. See a cardiologist asap.
