When I was put on Bisoprolol last year for PAT I remember feeling freezing cold and it was summer and everyone else was hot. That symptom seemed to wear off or I just got used to frequently feeling cold and I thought maybe it was because I had bad circulation. I felt reassured that the tablet was doing its job as I wasn't getting the racing heart, palpitations & other awful symptoms I had previously been getting. As time has gone on, must be nearly a year I've been on it, I've felt worse generally.There isn't a day goes by I don't get a headache, they don't last long & sometimes I describe it as just a pain in my head..always in same spot above my left eyebrow...off and on throughout the day. I try to walk every day for at least 30 mins and often I can manage it comfortably...on the flat and when the wind isn't strong..but some days I'm quite breathless just setting off and have the uncomfortable tight feeling in my chest. Yesterday was particularly bad. I had to cut my walk short and when I got home was exhausted and had to lie down. Despite very warm weather my husband got blankets for me to try and keep me warm as I was so cold and shivering. I did try coming off bisoprolol last year when the cardiologist said it would be OK to stop them and see how I was and to go back on if I wasn't good....which is exactly what happened within a day. So on the one hand I get some reassurance being on it as I certainly couldn't cope with the symptoms I was getting with PAT. I hate the way I'm feeling though, so tired,struggle with my weight, sometimes a bit dizzy, etc, but its difficult to know for sure what to blame as I am also on medication for RA and on statins and BP tablets. Along with the uncomfortable feeling in the chest does anyone also get a sort of weird feeling in the throat and sometimes stomach? Bit hard to explain. Its been so helpful to read this forum and realise so many people have experienced same symptoms on this drug and I'm not going mad....completely!
