i was first diagnosed 7years ago during a routine blood pressure test. i have never had any symptoms i,e. palpations etc. sadly cardioversion didnt work. i first noticed myself getting more breathless about 3 years ago but only on inclines and hills. for the last 2years i noticed how breathless i was in very hot weather. however this year things have got worse. in july i was very ill with a burst duodenal ulcer. i was kept in hospital for several days during which time i had blood tranfusions. it was after this that i became more breathless my gp put it down to anemea the aftermath of the bleed. i now have a normal hg but the breathlessness continues. when i first stand up from sitting down and moving i get breathless but it eases off when i continue to walk. i have become so paranoid and anxious about the breathlessness i find myself avoiding excercise in cas my heart gives out. i have discussed this with my gp she suggested cbt. does anyone else feel panicky?
