ok i'm getting really scared and i know i'm doing a lot of it to myself. I was doing really good controling my anxiety and then i had a follow-up visit with the cardiologist to go over the results to a holter moniter i had to wear after an anxiety related er visit. i was terrified as to what they might have found and as you can imagine very anxious. I could feel my heart start to pound as soon as i walked in the door. he didn't like it, said it was beating to fast, and that it had been fast during the monitor (let me tell you i was never as anxious as i was during the time i had that monitor on). He abrubtly and almost non feeling wise puts me on bystolic a beta blocker without looking at my history, etc. i have had normal blood pressure readings and no one has commented on a high pulse before. He didn't seem to believe in anxiety. I had a bad reaction to the first dose and ended up passing out. i called the office the following day only to be told it couldn't have caused it to continue taking it, and when i asked about taking it with my asthma the nurse basically laughed at me and said there wasn't concern even though the pharmacist said for me to check into it. I decided to hold off on taking the meds until i could see my reg doctor and discuss it further as well as other possible treatments. OK here is my fear, today, i ended up in the clinic lastnight with acute asthma symptoms, ( i literally could not breathe) and was put on a bunch of medicines to help all of which have raised my pulse its hovering at 130 and terrifying me. I know the anxiety over it is only making it worse but i can't seem to calm down about it. I don't and can't afford to go to the hospital again. Any suggestions as to what to do?
