Last week so many of you lovely people answered my post about my 'funny turn' which resulted in a few hours in a&e with a galloping heart rate and a feeling I was about to pass out.
My bisoprolol dose was increased from 2.50 to 3.75 and things settled down. I flew to majorca yesterday - had a relaxed day,
didn't rush, prebooked seats and 'express' security lane to save any hassle. It's only a short flight but I experienced a few 'bumps' in my heart rate which thankfully didn't amount to anything. However after landing my hr was up to 145. I didn't have any other symptoms, only the fast hr. I'm assuming this is the atrial fibrillation that I've been diagnosed with even tho I haven't really experienced it before? Tthings are back to normal today with hr between 74 & 85 but I'm now concerned about the flight home!! When I was first diagnosed 4 years ago I asked if there was a pill I could take when I felt my heart rate speeding up but was told bisoprolol would keep things in check. These two episodes 6 days apart are making me think this isn't the case! Any advice please??
