Well here I am again with another question - sorry.
Despite reducing to 1.25mg Bisoprolol since the weekend my husband is still experiencing a serious lack of strength in his legs. This is preventing him walking even short distances outside and is completely freaking him out. There is no shortness of breath just feeling like he is pushing his legs to extremes. HR is being maintained well (58-62) during these episodes with only slight rise in BP which I believe is brought on by fear of falling down. INR levels good at 2.4.
Just had a battery of blood tests (Thyroid/ B12/Ferrate/ Diabetes etc) and pressure examination of legs, as GP wants to rule out "other causes". Echo due to be done tomorrow then hopefully get to see a Consultant for the first time since discharge. It seems too much like a coincidence that this weakness is caused by anything other than the beta-blocker.
So we're not talking about being too breathless / tired to walk any distance just feeling like your legs won't support your body. Has anyone else experienced this lack of leg strength whilst taking Bisoprolol? I'm really concerned too but trying not to fuss too much.
