Low HR, high BP: Are you taking a beta blocker to treat paroysmal supraventricular tachycardia? If so, it would explain the slow pulse. If not, some patients have bradycardia tachycardia syndrome but are often treated with beta blockers. Is a cardiologist involved for treatment and to investigate the chest distress to look for cause? What does hsctn signify'. A cardiologist is best to evaluate and treat you.
