My heart rate gets abnormal after different intervals. Yesterday my BP was 80/140. I get palpitation and feel uneasy while I am angry or during a sudden emotional rush. I have been feeling this problem for the past one year. I am taking Telmikind (20 mg), and Nebicard (2.5 mg). And I took an ECG and Echo. Why do I have palpitations? Please suggest remedies and medications.

Thanks for your query.
Sorry to hear about your health issues. Please be positive, and you will be fine. You were experiencing palpitations. These showcases as a rapid heartbeat or a racing heart. Often palpitations are not caused by underlying heart diseases. The reason they come up is when there is a trigger. For example, tobacco, alcohol, sleeplessness, coffee, etc. So limit the use of such substances and sleep enough, at least six to seven hours a day. You will be fine. Do you mean your blood pressure measured 80/140 or 140/80? Please measure and get back to me.

Thank you, doctor, for your reply.
My BP is 140/80 mmHg, and also I have an increased heartbeat along with increased blood pressure. Should I continue my medication?
Welcome back to icliniq.com.
Blood pressure of 140/80 mmHg is fine. The diastolic blood pressure, which is the lower value (80), is perfect at 80. It is an essential value. I advise you to continue the medications as prescribed in these dosages. Nebicard (Nebivolol) will also help to reduce your heart rate. It might take a while, though, but you will be fine. I wish you sound health.
