Hi,

Thanks for posting your query and sharing your concern.

Please visit a physician or cardiologist and get some investigation done as per their advice.

The reason for sending him to cardiologist could be uncontrolled blood pressure in spite of regular medications,some changes in ECG done etc.

Apart from medicines please discuss with him the above mentioned issues.

Wishing him good health.
