I became ill about a month ago at work. Dizziness, palps, shivery, very flu like. This went on for a few week until i visited the gp. He took bloods and said i was fine, plenty of rest needed. A week later i was back. The headaches, palps at night, cold sweats, dizziness and lightheadedness had no let up. I was prescribed sertraline for anxiety (the doctor seemed to think i was anxious) which i took for 3 days before collapsing and ending up in a&e and being told that im not to take sertraline anymore. An ecg showed ectopic beats and pvc beats for which i was kept for a heart echo and given bisoprolol 2.5
After being discharged I decided the 2.5 was not for me and asked the doctor after another trip to a&e if i could go for the smaller 1.25 dose which they agreed. Its been 2 weeks and its still leaving me totally floored. Vivid dreams, tired all the time, dizzy spells and feel like im walking uphill almost any time i exert myself. Is this normal? I do seem to have a spell once a day where i get really dizzy and my legs feel like they are made from jelly and i cant catch my breath and i dont know if this is anxiety or the bisoprolol. My gp was hesitant to prescripe me anything else for anxiety or any bensoz to calm me down as in the hospital i was showing signs of hyperventilating. I feel so lost and like my life is over. Im in my mid 20s
