Dear customer,
Thank you quick additional info.
A normal pulse rate healthy adult, while resting, can range from 60 to 100 beats per minute.Average pulse rate is 72 beats per minute.
Arrythmia is a change in the rhythm of your heartbeat.When the heart beats too fast,it's called tachycardia.There are many different types of arrhythmia.Most arrhythmias are harmless but some are not.
The range of systolic blood pressure healthy adults falls between 90 and 120 millimeters of mercury (mm Hg). Normal diastolic blood pressure ranges between 60 and 80 mm Hg.
You may need tests such as Electrocardiogram(EKG),Stress EKG,Holter monitoring.
Holter monitoring is required.It is a machine that continously records the heart's rhythms. The monitor is usually worn - 48 hours during normal activity.Your doctor uses information captured on the Holter monitor's recording device to figure out if you have a heart rhythm problem.
So as you said that you had arrhythmic pulse and irregular blood pressure that started about 2 days ago,I advise you to make an early appointment with your cardiologist to have these tests done so as to know the exact underlying cause & then treatment will be done accordingly.
