Hypertension, Tachycardia, Dyspnea, you need to see a doctor! I cannot tell you what is going on w/o an interview, an exam and some test results: blood work, EKG, Chest Xray, possibly cardiac ECHO.
You can read more here:
Many things can trigger palpitations, including:
- Strong emotions
- Vigorous physical activity
- Medicines such as diet pills and decongestants
- Caffeine, alcohol, nicotine, and illegal drugs
- Certain medical conditions, such as thyroid disease or anemia (a low blood count).
These factors may make the heart beat faster or stronger than usual. Avoid caffeine etc. meanwhile.
Hope this helps,
