I have had what thr doctors think is svt since october. Lots of episodes & possible side effects from bisoprolol between then & december time. GP kept upping the dosage which made me worse. Now been taken off them unless I have an episode.
Since then I've had a 24hr monitor & a scan.
As i hadn't jad anything happen since December I just got on with things.
I am more stressed now with work, running round after a toddler etc but having no symptoms so thought its definitely not anxiety or stress causing it. Then Monday (whole wearing another monitor) sat at my desk at work my bpm went to 126 & took a good hour to slow down. Yesterday the same happened as I walked home for my lunch break. Bpm about 130+ which although not high I felt light headed & dizzy & my heart rate seemed to start to slow then jump up high again. After 1.5 hrs I phoned tge hospital & removed the monitor & took meds.
I was abit worried & stressed at work but i had a bad nights sleep with my little one plus my grandad died a week ago & my partner is due to have a minor knee op soon so I'm wondering if it really is just stress or is causing svt to get worse.
I've got to wait 3 weeks for results of monitor, as my bpm wasn't particularly high I'm guessing I'll be back to square one. I am going to join tge gym in attempt to get fittter to see if that helps.
Has anyone else suffered stress & svt or does it sound like anxiety? I'm completely lost as to what to do
