I have heart failure and Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy and a heart that can go between 39 and 220 beats in a second. After years of coming to terms with it I now ride the bumpy with the smooth but in 2017 after years of being on antenolol I was put onto Bisoprolol 2.5. I must admit the pain that I had had in my chest disappeared straight away which was a positive. I then had an EPS and couldn't have the ablation and was put on 10mg of Bisoprolol. Its been fine until a week before Christmas. My heart has been its normal self, all over the place, but no 200 beats yet which is brilliant, but I have developed the most horrid sensation. It is like someone has tipped led into my body. I can't move as my body feels so heavy. I haven't been able to go out as I can't walk more than a few steps without having to sit. My breathing (I have never been able to breath) is the same as normal but there is a feeling of an elephant lying on my chest. Both sides of my neck up to my lip feels like a led pipe has been put under my skin. I can't sleep at night.
My dosage was raised months ago but I can't help but wonder why this is happening.
Has anyone had the same or similar?
Yes of course I will book an appointment with GP but know it may be sometime before I get to see the consultant.
Many thanks for your thoughts.
