In '08 my resting bp was 150/100 pulse was 159, and I was put on Norvasc and
Toprol. EKG showed sinus tach, CXR, and
all basic labs (CBC, CMP, TSH, lipid, etc) were normal. Now my resting bp with meds is avg 120/90 puse 90-120's.
I have noticed that my pulse goes up to 130-150's with minimal exertion (walking to the next room from sitting), no chest pain, no shortness of breath, only extreme fatigue, occasional dizziness and nausea.
