Brief Answer:
Age wise, heart rate and BP is normal.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Thanks for asking.
I am Dr. Prakash HM and I will be answering your query.
Blood pressure appears to be normal for your age. Systolic of 141 is not considered hypertension at your age.
Pulse rate of 95 is good.
Do follow up with blood pressure. If it falls below 90/50, it will be worrisome. Otherwise nothing to worry.
If you are feeling palpitations, then possibly arrhythmia can be thought off. At present does not appear to be an emergency, however, do inform your doctor about irregular heart beat before getting the nuclear stress test.

Take good rest.
Any further queries, happy to help again.
Dr. Prakash HM

I am almost 60 years old. When I cut the grass (self-propelled mower) walking at its max speed, I get very fatigues, short of breath, and experience tightness in my chest. I use a treadmill 5 days a week and may need to lose 20 pounds. I had a stress EKG 2 years ago and everything was fine. I have high BP, controlled with medication and Type 2 Diabetes controlled with medication. Many times I get arrhythmia during these events. What could this be?

Recently visited cardiologist for abnormally high basal heart rate, ~97 bpm with arrhythmia. Blood pressure within normal range. MD suggested that I start on metoprolol 25 mg STAT. He did ECG, and it was abnormal. But he didn't confirm any diagnosis. I have another appointment after 2 weeks for ecocardiogram, and most likely MRI.



What is the most likely diagnosis? I would appreciate any of the comments.
