Breathless - Update II
I persisted with the PM Clinic in so far as telling them that although all the tests they had defaulted to came back clear (angio/CT/XRay) I still didn't feel 100%.
They finally conceded and 'tweaked' my settings. The technican raised the lower limit from 50 to 60. She was somewhat reluctant to do it saying that the settings were currently optimised for me and adjusting in this way might - stress might - bring on some other complications. No explanation was given as to just what complications might materialise.
My argument was that text books and tests might be indicating the settings are optimised but I STILL DIDN'T FEEL RIGHT!!!
Anyway heres the thing, the settings were adjusted Monday and I've had a much better week. Still not 100% but definitely an improvment.
However there is something that is bothering me and I hope someone on here can shed some light. I've told the doctors and techs that things are 'odd' and I'm definitely not anywhere close to pre=PM /pre-heart problem levels of health.
The issue is this; after the most gentle of exercise my heart rate DROPS. Even at rest, for no reason it will DROP. Can you see the conundrum. It doesn't go up as it should. My wife is a trained nurse and thankfully has witnessed / monitored this herself, had she not I might be thinking I was losing it a little by now.
It is prevented going below 60 now because of the adjustment, last week it was prevented going below 50, either way I still feel unwell. Just not to level I felt prior to the 'tweak'.
I've just been monitored for 24 hours at home so maybe this will highlight something.
Still on Bisop 2.5mg.
Anyone have experience of thisf?
