Weak heart or liver

35 m hypertensive, moderate alcohol/smoke, marginally overweight. I've noticed that my system can no longer tolerate alcohol, after 2 bottles of beer, 5-6 hrs later i start having heart pain pain, if d pain continues 4 long and i dont sleep it leads to irregular heart beats. B4 a dr placed me on 100mg of atenol and adviced me not to drink more than 2 bottles of beer a day i used to wake up at night with very rapid hb. ecg is normal, echo showed lv thickness 1.1 and slightly thickened endo with normal kinetic activity. My bp is about 120-140/80-90. I take captopril 20mg, amlodipine 5mg and half moduretic everyday, what is my prognosis, can i start joging0 will it ewtend my life span

Hi,
How are you? Hypertension is one cause of heart failure. And this can be prevented with healthy lifestyle such as  low salt diet, regular exercise and cutting off smoking and alcohol intake. Live healthy, continue with your medications and start jogging regimen. This will definitely extend your lifespan. Regular follow-up consultation is also highly recommended. Take care and regards.
