Morning everyone, I would really appreciate your advice about something that is worrying me . I was found to have raised blood pressure at my annual spirometry test and this is being managed with medication. However my heart rate remains high (resting heart rate around 103 bpm where is it used to be around 80bpm)
I had pulmonary embolus 5 years ago and was diagnosed with COPD soon after.
My doctor has referred me for an ECG and told me that if I suddenly become short of breath to go straight to A&E. I was also advised to avoid the gym until I’ve had the ECG.
I would appreciate any advice anyone can give me.
Many thanks and have a lovely weekend
