So I have had a cardiologist since I was 22. I do have severe anxiety, and had an EP study in my mid 20's and a Holter monitor to rule out bad ayrithmias. All normal results. I get a yearly check up with the doc and an EKG. Always fine. I do have high blood pressure but it's controlled with nadolol and amlodipine. From about 25 on I get light headed when exercising and head pressure and now it's to the point where I got it just from sitting and doing curls. I have been extremely sedentary for about 10 years because I'm afraid to exercise especially now. I used to be an athlete. I have a cardiologist appointment in one month because I can't deal with this. It's like exercise is important to be healthy, yet it makes me feel unhealthy or like it's a threat to my well being. It can't be all in my head, it's very very real, but if I had all these prior tests, what could be causing this? I just want to be active again. I told him about this last year, after the EKG. He didn't seem concerned but didn't have a good answer. I cut the nadolol from 40 MG to 20mg. Can it be the BP meds doing this to me? I'm afraid of a stress test because of embarrassment of what will happen or how ill look or what may happen during. Does anyone have any input? Thanks i appreciate it.
