Detailed Answer:
Hello Sir

After going through the medical details provided by you I understand your concern and I would like to tell you that although there is nothing to worry but considering your age it's advisable that you should get an ECG and an Echocardiogram done.

Echo is important to rule out any aortic stenosis.

I hope this information will answer your query

Kind Regards
Dr Bhanu Partap
