I finally saw a cardiologist this week after having quite a rough time over the last few years since my MIs (multiple trips to the A&E with MI symptoms, but no confirmed MI, constant fatigue, angina without exertion, etc).
Thankfully, he’s happy with the condition of my heart (something I’ve been wanting someone to tell me for years!) but has referred me for an angiogram (and angioplasty if necessary) because he is unable to explain why I have chest discomfort and/or pain when at rest, and suspects there may issues elsewhere.
He also stopped my Bisoprolol 1.25 because my heart rate was dropping to below 50 at rest. And also put me on Isodur 25.
I’m now into day 2 of the medication change, and I’m not doing too great. BP is fine (was much lower than usual on the first day) and HR is normal, but I have this strange, uncomfortable pressure in my chest. No pain, just the constant almost solid feeling.
I’ve read that suddenly stopping Bisoprolol can have adverse side effects (including MI) but I don’t think the cardiologist would’ve told me to stop it if would do me harm?
