Heart rate and excercise
Last week I had a telephone appointment with a cardiologist I haven't seen before and I explained that I am still suffering with breathlessness and fatigue, so his response was you need to improve your fitness levels.
I have done a couple of brisk power-walks on the treadmill and I still experience the issue of my heart rate getting to about 120bpm and then crashing to the base limit of 60. It then will only recover by about 20-30bpm thus meaning my workout is extremely difficult as I can barely breathe and get jelly legs.
My main concern today is that since my workout (almost 3 hours ago) I am getting random spikes in heart rate, one episode lasted about 10 mins at around 110-125bpm. I took a reading on my home monitor and called my pacing clinic, who state nothing has been flagged up and no arrhythmia detected.
I haven't had this happen from exercise before and I am feeling quite weak now. I am on Bisoprolol for AT- currently on the waiting list for EP study/ablation.
