Since This Tuesday BP is 108/75 I am 58.
I had a problem with a much more serious situation in 2005. Took meds and been off of meds since 2012. I have had a lot of financial stress though in the past 3 months. No meds now. Just some ecotrin asprin. I also had a cardiologist that I have seen in the past about 3 years ago.

Thank you for all the information,
I am sorry for your symptoms.
There can be due to a few causes.
In most of the cases, it is benign in nature.
Anxiety, stress can be factors.
Tea, coffee, alcohol, & smoking, stress often exacerbates it.
This can be due to heart disease like ischemia or low blood supply to heart.
Hormonal disorders like low thyroid, electrolyte imbalance, obstructive sleep apnea can be associated.
An EKG, Holter monitor, echo,blood work can be taken.
Heart issues should be checked without delay.
I would suggest to take an examination by doctor asap.
I hope this information helps.
If there’s anything else I can do, please let me know.
Wish your good health.
Please rate my answer excellent if you are satisfied with it.
