Suggest treatment for rapid heart rate

I am woken from sleep at times with racing erratic heart beats. It is terrifying I feel like I am having some kind of heart problem. I have to get up. This can last from few minutes to 20 minutes or longer. I had chest discomfort on my left side which also goes up the left side of my neck. When I took my blood pressure this last occasion, the monitor showed afterwards my pulse rate was 104 and BP 138/67. I am on Bisoprolol 5mg. Can you please tell me what causes the racing heart episodes.

Hello There

After going through your medical query I understand your concern and I would like to tell you that racing heart rate can be due to gastritis if you had heavy and spicy dinner, if not then it’s recommended for you to get an evaluation done. Kindly get done and ECG and cardiac makers and consult your physician for further treatment.

Hopefully this information will guide you properly.

Kind Regards
Dr Bhanu Partap
