I went faster than normal and it flt like it was beating very hard. I could feel the pulse in my head.? And I was like short of breath. I had to stop. Plus, my mom told me my face was really red. I m confused? Help? Did my BP go up too much or what? Additional Details: I have hypertension, arrhythmias, and mild mitral valve regurgitation(diagnosed in January) Someone asked my age.
