Dysautonomia: Heart rate and blood pressure are controlled from the lower brain via the autonomic (automatic) nervous system. You may find that the blood pressures in two arms are different when measured by 2 people at the same time. Commonest cause is sugar in all its forms inducing a secondary deficiency of vitamin b complex--particularly true if the systolic is high while the diastolic is relatively low.
