The hr dropping is likely related to the beta blocker. Chest pressure though could be a variety of things. Best bet is to either call your pcp or i f you are still experiencing ch est pressure seek further assistance from a urgent care orer.

Given your age of 26 and being on a beta blocker you must already have a medical condition. Beta blockers can certainly lower heart rate, but i would advise further evaluation.

What is the reason you are on a beta blocker? You should see your doctor for a serious conversation about your medications.
