Hi there.
Thank you for your question.
I will be helping you out with your queries.
Your heart rate and your blood pressure is something that needs to be taken care of ASAP.
I would recommend that you be seen in the ER to have an EKG done first and then you should also have your blood pressure medication reviewed as well because the lisinopril has not worked for you as yet in controlling your blood pressure.
Let me know if you have more questions.

Kind regards

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
