Two weeks before Easter started with chest pains, decided were due to stress - before Dr's appt NHS Helpline said go to hospital as increased at night. ECG showed one off atrial fib. Since then all tests including CT show all OK and no heart disease. However since I was still having chest discomfort bisoprolol was increased from 1.25 then 2.5. Hospital increased to 3.75 and ordered the CT scan. As all OK was told to stop taking the aspirin and continue 3.75 bisoprolol although was hardly having any discomfort. I have been told that the biso does not help any pain so why keep increasing it and although have asked to decrease Dr says no. Also when stopped aspirin ( know it can cause heartburn & indigestion) got both. Since had both since Nov now been prescribed Omeprazole for 2 weeks.Worried about side effects - loss of hair and if long term bone damage. Surely ok to decrease biso of heart ok? Am 62 yr female and retired in June re stress at work.
