Hello rastuscat.

greetings from

I am Dr Sourav Chakraborty and i will be helping you out with your query.
Your case history is inadequate as you have not mentioned your other co-morbid conditions, your habits, your current medications if any. Currently as per your case history i will ask you to get a baseline ECG and an echocardiogram done for your heart to rule out any obvious cardiac ailments. You did mention your blood pressure recordings are normal to bit high so i assume your blood pressure recording is around 130-140/80-90 mm of Hg . I also would like to check your thyroid and blood sugar level in your blood, as thyroid dysfuntion and diabetes are co -morbid conditon that slowly kills your heart. Also apart fromy our anxiety do you occasionally feel breathlesness with palpitations. Please do get yourself evaluated by a physician so that he/ she can clinically come to a significant conclusion. Hope i have been able to help you. Take care.
