Bicuspid Aortic stenosis, on beta blockers, wakes up with dizziness, profuse sweating, loss of breath. Cause of concern?

My husband was diagnosed with Bicuspid Aortic Stenosis 2 yrs ago. recently he wakes up 2 -3 times a week with severe diziness, sweating to where he removes shirt and sometimes shorts and cant get his breath. test within the last yr indicate no new growth ( valve measures 3.3) and he is on a beta blocker . He does occasionally have a beer or two in the weekends which is usually when this occurs. Is this a concern as he will not go to the DR.

Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

You should see your doctor soon.
Dizziness in a setting of aortic valve disease is an indication to see the doctor immediately.
Shortness of breath also has similar significance.

Critical narrowing, arrhythmia, failure need to be looked into.
EKG and ECHOcardiography should be repeated
Possible sudden catastrophe should be avoided by investigation.

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
