    Good evening. Am sorry about that. Are you a know hypertensive patient or previously having any heart issues. You may need to do an Echocardiography and see a cardiologist for further evaluation and proper management. Take care

    If your heart beat is faster, or any abnormalities, you may need to do Echocardiography, its more advanced than ECG. By this, appropriate drugs will be given. Note that, its not too good to prescribe without medical examination and investigation especial in a case related to heart, you may still need to see the cardiologist to examine you more
