I have been having pains in my shoulders and collar

Patient : I have been having pains in my shoulders and collar bone. My pulse has been over 100 (usually around 112) for weeks. I have had ekg's done and they said the only real problem was my pulse rate. I've started feeling pins and needles in my arms off and on daily. I'm scheduled to see a cardiologist May 1st, but I'm worried about waiting so long. How can I lower my pulse while I'm waiting to see the cardiologist?
