Hi all was wondering if anyone has found whether the HR drugs will also help with breathlessness?
I have been prescribed calcium channel blocker verapramil (still waiting official script but that's what it will be). Have lone PAF and no other medical issues (am 49).
I don't have much trouble with palpitations really, but I am having a nightmare with not feeling like I've taken a full breath. It's like I take in lots of air but it never feels satisfying...like I'm always short of oxygen. Then every now and then I will take breath, almost a yawn, and it finally feels as though I've filled my lungs...then the whole process starts again.
I know shortness of breath is a symptom but I had thought it meant only during an afib attack. This is happening separately from those times.
Thanks for your time.
