I am a male, who is 5.6 feet tall and weigh 172 lbs. I have head and chest pains for over five years. Currently, I take Metoprolol, Amlodipine, Losartan, and Prednisone. My pulse and heart rates are normally regular, but immediately after doing Valsalva maneuver, it becomes trigeminal pulse. This is very repeatable. It returns to normal after about 10 to 15 minutes. What could cause this?

Thank you doctor,
I understand bigeminy and trigeminy, and occasionally it occurs at rest. I should have also said that I have both pulmonary sarcoidosis and neurosarcoidosis. I have been assured that I do not have cardiac sarcoidosis, but I have a lot of unusual imaging, which comes and goes. I am trying to understand the dynamics on why Valsalva might cause the rhythm change, it might be another piece of the puzzle.
