My mum has has af for 6 years and was eventually treated with a pacemaker after a year her symptoms became the same as prior to the pacemaker. in the last year she has become very breathless. She has also been to emergency with chest pains. which she has been given a spray. and now tablets.
She has had an angiogram, chest xray and numerous ecgs with nothing showing up. she is 75 years old slim and active (before this) The consultant who fitted the pacemaker has said there is nothing more they can do.
She has high blood pressure which she takes medication for, she is also on statins and warfarin and now anti depressants. Could the breathlessness be caused by drug interaction . It is so bad now she cannot even walk across the room without feeling awful. She also has pounding heart at times of rest for no reason.
Any suggestions i hate to see her so low now.
