What is the treatment for high blood pressure?

I had an episode today while sitting where it felt my heart stopped. I felt as if I might faint and then it passed. A couple hours later I took my blood pressure which was 145/85 and pulse of 93. I walk about 45 minutes a day with no problem. What could it be?

Hi,

Missing beats are usually an extra beat followed by long gap. One or two are usually normal things but if have many such then you should get your cardiac check up with simple ECG FIRST then With Echo or if necessary holter monitoring to check for frequency and duration of episodes.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Deepesh Agarwal
