Unfortunately diagnosed with Angina about 3 weeks ago and now on on Aspirin, Statins and the dreaded Bisoprolol. Well here is my dilemma! I consider myself to be a fit 59 year old who cycles 40 miles plus, swims, hill walks and undertakes regular Cardio activities at the gym and after experiencing a pressure sensation in the centre of my chest, not really pain but pressure I thought I better get it checked out. The result Angina..
Still awaiting Angio and Echocardiogram, feel well apart from the anxiety.
My resting heart rate was always between 50 - 60 sat relaxed on an evening and now its dropped to about 40-45 and lower in sleep. I have only taken 3 Bisoprolol 1.25mg over 3 days and this was the result. I have had one good training session in that 3 day period (2nd day) and I struggled to get my heart rate up to 70%.
I have spoken to my GP after concerns that the original prescription 2.5mg may be a problem. I am so glad she agreed to reduce it to 1.25mg. To add my BP is around 113/68.
I did brisk 3 mile dog walk on the flat and my heart rate was 75 - 83 bpm
Sorry to go on a bit but I am totally confused with all whats going on and just wondered if anyone else has had similar experience.
Thank you for reading
