This started about a week ago.
I noticed my heart was racing and I felt like I was going to faint if I didn't get up and move.
This happened two more times before I went to urgent care.
They did an EKG and it was normal, but my heart rate and blood pressure was still abnormally high.
The doctor added a beta blocker to my list of medications to try and bring my heart rate and blood pressure down.
She also suggested I get a sonogram of my heart since I haven't had one in about 10 years.
(I went to a cardiologist when I was 17 and they diagnosed me with high blood pressure and a heart murmur. At that time they checked my heart with a sonogram (it was clear) and they checked to see if my kidneys were blocked to see if it was causing high blood pressure (that was clear)
Right now I'm taking:
2 carvedilol tablets a day (3.125 mg) new medication urgent care put me on
1 mg Finasteride
25 mg Losartan
I thought about it and realized this is happened about thirty minutes to an hour after I ate.
I've got a follow up with my family doctor's nurse practitioner in a few days.
I've also tried to eat just a liquid diet and have found I don't have those symptoms, but if I eat solid foods then it will trigger a fast heart rate, high blood pressure, tingly hands, chest tightness, and slight chest pain.
side note - about two weeks before this started, I was on a Zpack for a terrible cough I had. I'm still coughing up green phlegm about twice a day. The Zpack didn't seem to help all that much. I don't have a fever though.
Please help with any suggestions?
