I was diagnosed with svt at the beginning of October but after my gp lost the ecg showing the important stuff its been a slow process.
The ecg has been found & now I'm being told its a normal rhythm just fast so not enough to confirm svt diagnosis.
I was originally given 2.5mg bisoprolol but since taking that I've had chest discomfort/mild pain & generally felt rubbish. I kept complaining to my gp about this who then made a cardio referral, theu then decided they wanted to cancel this & up my meds to 2.5mg twice a day.
I've been taking this for 4 days & still getting the chest discomfort on/off all day.
I have a 24hr monitor going on next week so another week of feeling terrible.
I haven't had any palpitations since going on meds but I can't stop my chest hurting. I was convinced the bisoprolol was the problem but I was told by my gp & a dr at the hospital its more likely that it's the episodes causing it but the meds are keeping my heart at a normal rate. I have no idea about this condition or whats likely to happen.
I feel awful, tired & grumpy, my chest is annoyingly uncomfortable & it seems such a slow process to get anywhere with drs & hospitals.
Can anyone help with what I can do about the chest discomfort/pain? Could it actually be something other than svt?
