I'm a very physically fit 70 year old tennis teacher

I'm a very physically fit 70 year old tennis teacher who still plays singles at an advanced level. Recently, after a very demanding 2 hour match, I felt bloated, a little dizzy with a rapid and irregular heartbeat. I slept for 2 hours right after the match but could not get rid of the gas and bloating. BP was normal. Heart rate returned to normal I take BP meds. Should I be worried about cardio vascular disease?

I m experiencing periodic heart palpitations and mild shortness of breath when going up a couple flights of stairs, or walking briskly up a moderate grade. I ve noticed this in the last 4-5 months. It is slowing me down when running to catch a bus, and impairs my ability to hike with friends. Since Dec I have had the flu and a cold almost continuous (constantly being reinfected by grandchildren). Would there be a connection? I m reasonably fit, no conditions of note, and my doc says I have low LDL and high HDL. No drugs except for finasteride. I m 70, 185 lbs, 6 2 . Should I see a doctor about this?

I am 57 years old, feel super fit and can do 45 minutes on the treadmill ( average 6 km/hr) at least 3 times per week. However, my blood pressure reading on normal resting days is in the range of 150/82 and fluctuates a bit . But the pulse rate is always on the low side fluctuating between 35 and 40 for most readings. My therapist thinks this is bad, especially the low pulse rate. Mind you, I can run the mile, am healthy, sleep well, eat the right food but the pulse rate intrigues me. Is there any logical explanation for this? Thank you.
