65/50: is not a number that commonly occurs. You might want a trained professional to confirm it. Ill-fitting cuff, wrong size cuff etc can give wrong numbers. Racing heart is most commonly not much of an underlying problem. The pattern of the beats (holter if it's disturbing or other symptoms) can determine it's severity...mostly just normal variations in heart. ...Read more

Studies have been di: The studies have been disproved but it is pleasant to think about while you are letting the Valharona slowly melt in your mouth.

Blood pressure: Those are wide ranging blood pressures. Did you have them confirmed at an office or clinic? If so, I would consider some secondary reasons for BP problems. These could be thyroid, adrenal, renal artery stenosis, carcinoid tumor. Important to have your provider recheck. Just because your heart is OK does not mean you do not have a BP problem ...Read more
