Yes: When there aren't enough red blood cells to carry oxygen, your body has to compensate by pumping the blood around the body more, resulting in increased heart rate. Blood pressure medicine, especially diuretics, may have adverse effect on the balance between BP: Blood pressure and HR: heart rate. Get checked out. Maybe the cause of your headache.

Yes: It sounds like there are many possible reasons for you to have these symptoms. The symptoms may be coincidence, medication related, or result from the same underlying cause. Go ahead and make an appointment with your doctor to address this and get to the bottom of it. Take care.
