As the header states I am unable to take anticoagulants.
Thing is I am making myself I'll with worry. To be honest I am terrified. I don't go outside anymore I just sit and watch TV as I am to scared to do any exercise.
It all started when I was feeling very tired and lethargic. I went to my gp who said after taking my bp my pulse was very slow at 43 BPM. He told me to stop taking the metoporol as he felt it was to strong for me. He put me on bisoporal 1.5mg daily along with the 75mg of aspirin I take due to a heart attack in 2007. He arranged for me to have an ecg two days later which showed AF. Since I stopped taking the metoporol 8 weeks ago I feel much better and my pulse is now regular at 60 BPM. My pulse has never raced at all, I do get a little breathless on exertion but I have COPD and this is normal.
I am very confused. Do I have AF or not or could it of been caused by the metoporol.
At the moment I am on suicide crisis watch by my local mental health team. (They phone me every 2-3 hours)
As I don't know how much more of this I can take to be honest
