I m having blood pressure and heart rate problems and was referred for a pacemaker. That physician recommended a cryo a-fib ablation instead. My BP goes up (systolic as high as 180 s, diastolic as high as 89) and I am on 2 BP meds. My heart rate varies widely, sometimes as high as 160 s, other times around 70. Activity escalates the problem, and I have both COPD and RA -- also compounding it. My question relates to the difference between a pacemaker and ablation --- which is better long term

My husband's heart is beating loudly and seems to be beating irregularly. I took his blood pressure and it was normal. His heart rate was 102bpm. He also has an urge to cough periodically. He's had these episodes happen before and the cough has helped at times. Do we need to be concerned? His father died from heart disease and started having an irregular heart beat when he was 35.
