Unstable BP & heart rate
In last one month, I had about 4 episodes of palpitation. And also bradycardia with HR going to 50 and even below. Once or twice HR touched 88 and 90 also. BP went upto 170 Systolic and 105-107 Systolic and 113/66 after the start of Metoprolol 25mg in place of Nebicard 2.5 mg. Sometimes, I feel there is a missed beat also For the last one month, there is lot of pressure in the chest giving good measure if discomfort. Have lost 2-3 kgs weight in last one month or so. Presently, medication is Telma AM 40/5 mg plus addl Amlo 5 mg; Metoprolol 25 mg; Roliflo OD-2 for BPH; Rosuvas 10 mg; Aspirin 75 mg and Nexium 20 mg. Angiography done about 15 months back was normal

Please get a 7 days Loop recorder test or 48 hrs Holter test done. Loop recorder is better as the episode is not daily, hence less chances of picking it up on Holter. Do your routine activities while this monitoring is on. We will know what kind of abnormal fast and slow heart rhythms you get. here is something called as Tachy Brady syndrome, and if we pick it up through these tests then pacemaker may help. On the other hand,  bradycardia could be due to medicines, if you don't get dizzy with bradycardia, then don't worry.
