Cardiologist 's  Response
hi and welcome.
well if you have no other risk factors for heart diseases and your cardiologist has done all the preliminary tests and they all are clear , then there is no need to worry.
you mentioned arrythmia... what exactly do u mean by that. do you feel black outs, change in your pulse rate and regularity ... any episode of syncope or palpitations or a missed beat .. or is it just the apprehension.
too much daily stress of our life has impact on our heart because too much neurotransmitters released form our nerves can increase our heart rate and gives us feeling of apprehension . if there is no chest heaviness especially on exertion , and no shortness of breath then it is of no significance. but if you have any of the symptoms i mentioned then its prudent to have a holters monitoring for 24 to 48 hours that will reveal any rhythm disturbance . causes can be sort out accordingly.
its also ideal that blood pressure should be controlled and any anxiety relieved because it can cause the most common of the rhythm disturbance called SVT. i would suggest you meet a senior cardiologist and it will help . take care and best regards

Hi there and sorry to hear about your problem...
Keeping your history in mind you have Grade 2 hypertension that canot be controlled just by diet and exercise,it need effective medical treatment so you should ask your treating dr for prescription anti hypertensive medication.

You can try some anti anxiety drug before going to bed. Decrease salt consumption with dinner, and don't take sleep during day.
Wish you good health,
