Hello new here
Had pacemaker fitted 6 weeks ago for sinus node disease have bracacardia
Aflutter and AF and also 3 holes in heart caused by 4 abaltions which haven’t worked. Pacemaker put in as I also have a heart block so couldn’t go on medication because I have long sinus pauses. Now I am on beta blockers for 3.5 weeks and having real problems: bad breathlessness on little exertion, swelling of feet and ankles and real exhaustion and feeling pretty wrecked most of the time. My GP is testing me for heart failure but these bad symptoms only came on when I had been taking the beta blockers for for about 10 days, of course still taking them
Has anyone else had problems like this with beta blockers?
Surely after all the X-rays ecgs etc I have had in the last 6-8 weeks heart failure would had been spotted?
I have been in and out of hospital a lot since March with my heat problems and would be shocked if no one picked it up
Any help of this would be so appreciate
