I am 68 year old male from India. I m 5ft 8'' tall weighing 67 kgs. I am a vegetarian. I am a sportsperson during 60s and 70s. I used to play vigorous tennis and cricket. I am told that i had a T wave inversion during the year 1977.I never had any symptoms before or after that. After that i had mild hypertension during the year 1980 .since 34 years i am taking medicine for hypertension.It is always under control.

I had prediabetes just 6 months back and i was under medication. Right now i am taking these medicines besides diet management: After breakfast I take StamloBeta 50 mg 1, Ismo 10 mg, Glycomet 125 mg and after dinner I take Ismo 10 mg, Atorvostatin 5 mg, ASA 50 mg ,Glycomet 125 mg.Apart from this, I do regular walking for 4 km every day in the morning (7 days a week) and I am always on the move and not sedentary.I am always active. I do some yoga breathing exercises also.By gods grace i have never had any problem with my heart during these 34 years or with diabetes either.

I have observed that my pulse rate oscillates between 50 and 66 . After walking for 4 km it goes to 85 per minute ,but subsides in the next couple of minutes say 3 or 5 mts to 60 or so. But when ever i take rest for a couple of hours, my pulse rate goes down beyond 50 also. I wish to know the reason and also is this an alarming situation? this happens only when i take hypertensin drug and takes rest for a couple of hours or so.

one more point is , when ever i take ECG,it always shows T wave inversion in v1 to v4, but my physician says it is normal. Is it correct? kindly advise
