Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

I am 31 years old. My father died recently. Since then, I am feeling an uncomfortable heartbeat. I am diabetic type 2. I took ECG two times and the heart rate was 88 beats per minute one time and 108 beats per minute the second time. ECG I took in a span of two days. Please suggest me what should I do or suggest me the medicine.


Welcome to icliniq.com.

It does not seem to be anything worrisome. Increase in the heart rate and feeling it does not mean you have anything abnormal. Heart rate may rise with anxiety, stress, walking on the ground or stairs, and this is entirely normal. So at present nothing needs to be done for your pulse rate. Anyways, if you feel too much uncomfortable then you may take tablet Ciplar LA 20 mg (Propranolol) once a day for two weeks. Otherwise, nothing needs to be done. Next thing, it is very important that you keep your sugar levels well controlled as deranged sugar is a high-risk factor for the future cardiovascular disease. Also, focus on a healthy lifestyle, diet, and regular exercises. Also, should get screening lipid profile done if not had recently. From the cardiac perspective, you should get one screening echo and TMT (treadmill test) done to know the current status of the heart, which most probably must be normal only. TMT will identify if any minor abnormalities are going in the heart. So overall, you need to focus on prevention.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
