Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

No cause for concern.
Blood pressure and cholesterol are risk factors that can be controlled well.
This is achieved easily with minimum or no side effects of medicines.
Life style modifications are also a must.

Awareness of heart beats is generally harmless.
With time, one generally ignores it.
If only it is very disturbing and interfering with lifestyle, you need to investigate.

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
