Shaking, weakness, high pulse rate, skipping heart beats, elevated BP. Treatment for symptoms?

My normal resting heart rate is around 60 b/m. In the past month with increasing frequency I will get shaky inside, feel weak and at those times my heart rate has been as high as 104 b/m. Sometimes this occurs while I am in a resting position and then my heart rate is around 80 times per minute with a pause every 8 to 11 beats. My blood pressure is also elevated running around 145/85.

Thanks for posting your query.
With the available described symptoms, there appears to be possibility of heart arrhythmias.
Presence of skipped beats and fluctuations in heart rate suggests the diagnosis.
You should consult with internal medicine specialist / cardiologist and should go for thorough check up.
You should go for electrocardiography (ECG) on preliminary basis.
You should also go for holter monitoring and electrophysiological studies of heart, if required.
You should also keep watch on blood pressure. Your blood is at borderline and above than this may require treatment.
Beta blockers are the best option.
Take care,
