Possibly: At your age, i would guess you are taking the drug for mitral valve prolapse or for rapid heart rhythm. If you have been taking propanolol for some time and now for the 1st time you are getting symptoms, i would question the connection with the medication. If the symptoms persist, you should be checked for a cause.
