Hi, I'm in persistent AF and have been on 2.5mg of Bisoprolol since diagnosis in May. Over the last few days I have experienced episodes of what I can only describe as breathlessness. I can walk distances OK, but get a feeling of not being able to get a full breath when I'm sitting at my desk at work. Is this something to do with the Bisoprolol or the AF? I'm due to have a cardio version in about 10 days time and had a pre-assessment this week and mentioned it to the nurse. She was unconcerned and thought it was the AF - I was fine at the time.
I also started Apixaban a month or so ago.
I have suffered from anxiety in the past and I admit I am worried about the upcoming cardio version coupled with my and my dog being very ill, so I have a lot on my mind at the moment.
