Hi all, hope you all got through Xmas ok. I just wanted to ask some advice please. I have been diagnosed with either IST or Atrial Tachychardia and have seen EP once and am due to see him again 7th Jan. he put me on 1.25 mg Bisoporol which doesn't seem to have made much difference.....except to bring my BP lower.....already have low BP during nights so not good. Still very breathless, lots of chest pains etc whenever I go anywhere and can't go out alone incase I pass out.
I had a job I love.....music teacher in primary school which is in jepardy as I have had a written warning because of my absence. I've been off work with this condition since August this year. If I'm not back by April I will lose my job. I am so upset.
At my appointment with EP I asked about ablation and was told he didn't want to do one as success rate is quite low and the condition may return anyway. Then he prescribed the bisoporol. Any thoughts on what I should push for at my next appointment? I really would like something done to get my life back but he is keen on trial and error with medications, only looking at procedures if none of the medications have worked.....by which time I will have lost my job. any thoughts welcome. Thanks.
