Hi I'm wondering if someone could help me!, iv started taking 40mg of Propanalol for anxiety and heart palpitations. It's been a few days in and my chest is really really tight and sore, I'm finding it hard to breathe and need to take deep breaths every so often. Is this serious?, it does say that it is on the Leaflet lol, but I'm wondering if I should call nhs 24?
