However this, and the family history, mean that my BP should be consistently below 130/80, which it was not, and in
June 2012 I started propranolol
40mg twice daily
A month ago I started to develop similar central chest pain, similar to that in 2006, although not radiating, worse on exertion, but sometimes present at rest. My GP would like me to have further investigations. The last two days I've resumed home BP monitoring and it seems to be consistently 166/100 or above.
