Your dad is heart patient as well as diabetic, the stomach shakes might be irregular heart beat also, in BP patients who have this disease for long time might develop something called arrhythmia where the heart beats irregularly. get an ecg done when he has shakes to rule out heart disease.

This could possibly be a rhythm problem.I was not sure of the movement of stomach bu pace maker will generally be needed to get the heart function rhythm correct.Now it is a common operation and being done at most of the bigger hospitals.

I m a male 32 yrs, non smoker, non drinker, 178 cms, 76 kgs, borderline high BP and normal sugar, family history of high BP (dad and mom) and sugar (dad, granddad...). I had a BP of 140/90 in a test taken about 6 months back and the doctor recommended I take Losartan 50 mg - which I ve been taking every day. I recently started running again (1-2 miles per day - every day) and my pulse is going very high (as high as 190s) within 1 mile. Do I need beta blockers or ACE inhibitors instead of/in addition to Losar?
