Consult with your nearby cardiologist...

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

I have gone through your query and here is my advice.

As per your history, I would suggest you to consult with your nearby cardiologist and get prescription for tablet metoprolol.

It would be better to start the medication as soon as.

In between kindly watch for symptoms like chest pain, sweating, breathing difficulty than you may require urgent medical care.
