Good to know that your echo (%age functioning of heart), treadmill (stress to heart) tests are normal. You are worried about heart failure, fear is justified because of first degree av block. Remember that heart never fails suddenly, it can stop functioning suddenly. Heart failure is a slow process and it reflects on echo & treadmill tests and there are associated clinical symptoms for doctor to look for and get the relevant tests done.

Now, in this age, that too with the long h/o of diabetes, hypertension, intakeof alprozalam, all of sudden, you can not quit, but you can try alternative medicines, from homeo, which will be given based on your constitution, will help to reduce the need of those medicines gradually, so that can be tapper gradually, but not sure that, you can quit completely, as this is since long,& you r above 73 years ow, so a bit risky. By following diet tips, strict life style pattern, practicing paranayamaa, breathing exercises which will be taught by art of living, etc trusts, you can get rid of tensions& keep mentally calm/peace, which will help to get better sleep, & regarding dreams, there is no relation with medicines, its all due to your subconscious thoughts, brooding, roaring of thoughts inside.

Not at all, but do not exert yourself all of a sudden. Initially, when you start any exercise program after a long gap, you will have aches and pains because those muscles that have remained passive for some time are suddenly being strained and therefore they will feel the pain for some time. But if you persist with a lower intensity until the pain eases up, you will find it better over time. Congratulations on your decision and keep it up under any circumstances.
