Hi! I am Dr Saleem. Welcome to JA. I will be answering your query shortly.

May I know your age please?

Do you have any other chronic health condition?

Have you had an ecg?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No other health conditions
I am an alcoholic
Not had an ECG, I had one about 6 months ago which was fine

Can you check your blood pressures?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Sadly not. My heart rate is high about 120bpm

I'm afraid there is a possibility of having atrial fibrillation here. You need to get an ecg at least. Only then you can be advised/prescribed heart rate controlling medication.
