How can it be that an increase in my calcium channel blocker brought my resting blood pressure numbers within normal range but my heart rate still 95?

In brief: Stop worrying

Heart rates vary among people and despite all the subscience from fitness folks, it's not a parameter that you need to worry about -- unlike your blood pressure, which is very important for you to regulate.
People's physiology differs. Be thankful that your hypertension is under control. Consider increasing your aerobic exercise level. Best wishes.
