Just thought I'd update all you wonderful folk on my follow up appointment with my GP after my diagnosis three days ago.
My heart rate was down to 78bpm which was attributed to the Bisoprolol my doctor put me on over the weekend. He recommended I stay on this drug at least until I get an appointment with a specialist.
Another ECG was taken and my heart beat is still irregular, but not as irregular. Not sure if that's a good thing or not. In my mind irregular is irregular and therefore can never be a good thing.
He said that even though I was still having an episode, he didn't feel the need to do anything to get it back into NSR and that he was happy to leave it until I saw a specialist.
He said he had completed a stroke risk assessment and that he didn't consider I was at any increased risk so was not planning to put me on any medication to help prevent a stroke at this stage.
Finally he said he was only referring me to a specialist because I had fainted, which led to me attending the surgery on Friday, and that without that symptom he would have probably just monitored the situation. (DOES THAT SOUND RIGHT?)
Anyway that was about it... Is there anything that strikes anyone as unusual or odd in his course of action?
Many thanks for all your help and support.
