You are a little young for hypertension. Maybe, there is a cause which could be corrected. You need further tests: Color doppler imaging of renal arteries. Check for Aortic Co- arct. Check endocrine diseases. See a, Endocrinologist. Show him my opinion.

Physical examination by your doctors, very important. Gynecomastia ? Surgical removal is good. Nipples can stand up if touched even in males .. It is a normal reflex. Nothing to worry

Since valve leak is mild, you need to be under regular physician's review at least once in a month. Do not stop drugs on your own ---- dangerous. Always consult your. Doctor.

He needs to be examined by a doctor. He will then need ecg, echo. Once the cause for the fast heart beat is determined treatment can begin. Meanwhile stop smoking, less coffee and meditation will help. Avoid redbull drink.
