Brief answer...yes,you need to be concerned Detailed answer..... Hello, Thanks for the query. You definitely need to be concerned since you are already a patient of hypertension and on anti hypertensive medications. A fast heart rate with shortness of breath could be a angina or even a silent type heart attack. You must immediately rush to ER and get yourself investigated and treated properly. I hope it helps,however you may revert to me for any further query. Best of luck Thanks
