High blood pressure, beta-blockers, ACE inhibitors, calcium channel blockers, palpitations
I am a 65 year old high blood pressure patient controlled with beta-blockers, ACE inhibitors, and calcium channel blockers. I have been getting constant palpitations for about 2 months. On my 3 visits to my doctor they had stopped and he declared the heart rate/ pulse OK. I was not palpitating when they did the ECG . ECG came back normal as did a raft of blood tests for thyroid , liver and kidney functions. I am still constantly palpitating however. There is no pain and I swim and gym regularly. I am not getting out of breath . What do I do next?
Hi, In case you are having intermittent palpitations , you might get 24 hour ECG monitoring i.e Holter test which give catch any intermittent rhythm disturbabces you might be having.Meanwhile also get yourself screened for anaemia . Hope it helps.
