I hope someone can help me out. I started treatment for HIV last year in Ecuador. After treatment things got worse instead of better. I had previously had what i think are ectopic beats, i felt like my heart stopped and i couldnt breathe but it only happened when i was stressed and screaming.
The doctor didnt believe it was the hiv pills fault so he sent me a bunch of exams. It came back Mitral Valve prolapse, atrial septal aneurism, but since this is in Ecuador the eco result was lost and they wont give me another.
So after that things got really bad, i had a stress test done and it was normal.
I kept looking around since the shortness of breath got worse and worse. I was told by 2 doctors to take Beta Blockers and by two others to not take them.
As of late it has been terrible, i was given lyrica for nerve inflamation. The next day i had extreme shortness of breath, my throat felt like it was closing. I felt like i was gonna pass out. I went to get my O2 checked and it was normal. My pulse was at 13O.
So there it is now i cant stand it, i get dizzy and feel like im gonna pass out. Im short of breath. Sometimes i feel like i was hit in the heart and are forced to breath out. Sometimes i feel like i cant breath.
I dont know what to do. Nothing has helped so far and im scared of beta blockers.
