Hello lybrate-user. I understand your concern. I would suggest you to visit a doctor nearby and check your BP manually and let the doctor evaluate you and decide on a BP medicine. You will also need to get your blood workup and ECG done (its routine) sometime soon. Hope this helps.

Hi you are about 14 kgs overweight. Your cholesterol levels are little over the borderline but you can control it by diet and exercise. Even 10% reduction in weight can make lot of difference in your cholesterol levels. Family history of heart disease is not necessary. Eat 10-15 almonds every day. Eat two spoons for flaxseeds. Cut down oils and ghee from your diet. Avoid biscuits and pastries. And mutton etc. Cut down maida and white bread. Do 30-60 mins of exercise regularly monitor your cholesterol levels every 3 months. You can bring it down. No need to panic now but take care.

Palpitations are common in females as you are 40 year age, you need to undergo investigations like echo, ecg etc and meet a general physician. If every test comes normal, it can be due to gastritis gas acidity and indigestion for that you have to decrease weight and take antacids.
