Go down to the drugstore and check your blood pressure and pulse daily for a week without it.
Write it down. (with your doctor's permission) and then do this while taking arthrotec (diclofenac and misoprostol). Then review it with your doctor. It could be nothing or a problem, depending on what your cardiac system is to begin with.
