Hi, Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum.
What is your Height and Weight? Do you have any kind of stress? Do you have chest pains? I would like to let you know that High Blood Pressure Per se wont cause any changes in your ECG, but Hypertension is a risk factor for heart diseases which causes ECG changes. If there was anything abnormal your Doctor would have let you known definitely as you are a mature person and there is no point in hiding from you, so that you take Proper care of yourself and would have subjected you to further tests. Kindly don't panic. I am sure he would have Prescribed you Anti Hypertension Medications, which i suppose you have been taking regularly as directed by him. If you are overweight lose it. Exercise regularly, like cardio, crunches, swimming, skipping. Limit your salt intake and avoid junk. If you smoke and drink, QUIT. Eat healthy nutritious balanced diet like fresh fruits and green leafy vegetables. Practice relaxation techniques like Yoga and Meditation. Sleep for 8 hours daily, avoid oversleeping and less than 6 hours sleep. All these steps will keep your BP under fairly good control. Go for regular follow up.

Wish you Good Health, Take Care.

Dr. Thank you very much for your advice, you help me a lot, let me describe you more about my routing.
I don't smoke or drink, take single meal a day, take too much tea (10-15 cups), sleep only 4 to 6 hours in two sessions. I am 6ft 1 in tall and weight is 240lb
After that, started running regularly, couldn't reduce my tea but stop putting sugar in tea. Taking XNICAL to reduce my weight as well(Please advice about that), started to sleep more, reduced 20lbs in one month, yesterday my BP was 95/120, started meal twice a day, break fast and dinner/lunch at 5p.m.
Please let me know what should I do more, what need to be change so I can lose my weight and BP as well, I don't want to start tablets to control BP, first want to try without that.
