Have been off sick from work since end of July as my AF was all over the place and I was experiencing quite nasty chest pains. Had to attend A@E a couple of times but just sent home.The GP increased my bisoprolol to 10mg each day and eventually AF more settled. I was referred back to the cardiologist because of the chest pains. Had clinic appointment about a month ago. Had exercise stress test done and managed it ok. ECG was ok and bloods fine. No sign of heart damage but I do have LV dysfunction as well as the AF. Was told they didn't want to see me for another 6 months but as I haven't had a heart scan for quite a while (2012) I was to have another. This has been arranged for 4 th November. Cardiologist did say I might have slight angina but dismissed heart failure even though GP had said that was why I was on ramipril. Anyway spoke to GP this morning to get my sick note extended and he is saying unlikely to be angina as I wouldn't have been able to complete the stress test. But I am still having occasional chest pains. Again up in the air with one medic saying one thing and another saying another. I know (or hope) the heart scan will determine what's happening but I thought I would put a post on here this morning as get more sense and understanding. Some days I am full of beans and others feel like I have mountains to climb.
