My heart rate seems to stay between 90 and 108 unless I am laying down or when I wake up its 67 .. My blood pressure is up to like 140 87 is it possible I've got some infection that the ER is missing or is this just results of my anxitey acting up cause I have new symptoms ie. the cold .. I almost went to hospital last night cause of my heart rate and I had like a little headache .. Please give me so advice on what to do .. I only take 1 Xanax .5 mg a day should I take more then one ?

Unless you had a fever, a cold or a sinus infection wouldn't cause the rise in heart rate. The blood pressure is probably elevated because of the elevated heart rate but neither of them is worrisome. I can't tell you to take your Xanax in any way other than the way it's been prescribed.
