Can you tell me if i had a blood clot in my lung, and took beta blockers, would they reduce or mask symptoms?

No: The most significant symptom is shortness of breath and betablockers will not make this better. It's true that fast heart rate does accompany pulmonary embolism and this one aspect could be masked by a B B. But rapid breathing also accompanies it and this is not masked either.
