Our expert says:
I'm sure the chest pain and foot pain are nothing to do with your heart, and a hernia could not cause the sort of pain you describe.
As far as your heart rate is concerned, high heart rates are common in young women, often slim young women who are anxious. You are taking Bisocor which brings down your heart rate but may also help control symptoms of anxiety. How long you take it really depends on how long you have unpleasant symptoms.
What I would do is try to reduce the dose slowly to the lowest dose that works, and then every now and again try to wean yourself off it altogether: Beta blockers like Bisocor are very safe drugs but like all drugs they should be used only if and when necessary.
However I would be guided by your GP or cardiologist.
Hope that helps!
