The echocardiogram is normal and you do not have any heart problems

Expert:  Zee J replied 12 days ago.

so nothing to be worried about

Expert:  Zee J replied 12 days ago.

I would suggest using beta blockers which would keep your heart rate under target even when you are having anxiety and tension

Customer: replied 12 days ago.
I’m on Propranolol and still get the fast heart rate
Customer: replied 12 days ago.
The other day it went up to 150bpm that’s when I had the ecg
Expert:  Zee J replied 12 days ago.
Thanks
Expert:  Zee J replied 12 days ago.

Good you are on propranolol

Customer: replied 12 days ago.
It doesn’t help
Expert:  Zee J replied 12 days ago.

then you can change to other beta blocker like Bisoprolol plus also have psychological support and if needed SSRIs also

Expert:  Zee J replied 12 days ago.

do you have any further questions???

Expert:  Zee J replied 12 days ago.

I am still here
