I started taking beta blockers about a month ago now.
They presumed A-Fib plus my Hyperthyroidism was very high so my doc placed me on these pills.
I started on 10, so 3 a day. And at first I felt a bit better and thought, great, no more palps/flutters/super fast heart beat just by watching TV/laying down etc etc.
Then after approx 2 days being on them, I'm drained, sleeping in the day, feeling sick, pains everywhere and thought I should let my doc know.
She then put my dosage up to 40, so i take 20mg 3-4 times a day (dependant on how I feel) and it just has no effect on me anymore.
I tested it by going back down to 10 and it wasn't working either.
My heart is still racing and above all of this, today I had the most painful stabbing pains around my heart area and arms (thought I was having a heart attack!) for a good 5 minutes.
I also fainted on Sat night (2nd march 2019). And I don't usually faint.
Not sure if these symptoms are related but my Doctor takes forever in calling me back or sometimes removes me from her call back list and I don't want to bother her because she's probably so busy.
So i thought i'd come on here and see if anyone else has had similar issues on Propraolol because I'm not sure what i should do.
I know i can't come off of them straight away but maybe coming off of them slowly is an option? Not sure, but I know i can't quite cope with this much longer.
Ps. I'm a healthy, 22 year old. I also exercise but haven't been much due to feeling exhausted and feeling sick.
No worries if you see this article and can't relate, just looking for some answers. Or even one. 😃
