Bradycardia Syndrome VS Tachycardia Syndrome

I've had bradycardia all my life until now.  I went from averaging 54 and below (even went down to 40HR), two years ago to now averaging 90 beats per minute. Why?  I admit I am a salt addict but have been all my life eating only sea salt, if that matters. Nothing has changed in my diet but I will try cutting back on my iced tea which I drink throughout the day to mostly water (boring) and fight my urge to add salt to my foods. Maybe that will work lower the old BP.  I will take any comments/suggestions.  Oh,  I'm a 70 year old male in reasonably good shape and walk 4-6 miles three to four times a week.
salt intake affects BP, but not heart rate.
 you should have EKG,or 24 hour EKG, to find out do you have Sinus bradycardia and atrial-ventricular conduction block.
Hello Jack, did you mean you used to have low heart rate and it's been up to 90 beats recently? In this case I think there's a chance of atrial arrhythmia. Of course you need to get an EKG, probably a holter. I think your doctor will order them for you. You're going to see a cardiologist, right?

Thank you.  I will address your points during my appointment next week.
Thanks again.  Jack
