Is it OK to travel for a heart patient?

I have a heart problem and need to go to hospital everyday. Can I claim for taxis? I m not a scrounger but I m told I need complete bedrest apart from when I have to go to hospital every morning for 2 hours for my drug to be administered. Public transport will add several hours to my day and add to my stress. I have two children and am at my wits end.

Hi i am 30 year old male who was hospitalized 3 months ago for atrial fib. Had the whole gambit of tests and all seemed ok. I was put on beta blockers then a heart monitor a month later for massive palpations and rapid beat. i was put on another med after to regulate heart rate. Now i still experience palpataions and i can feel when they are about to happen. also extreme fatigue and some weakness. What is the issue here? i do smoke but not massive smoker. I did gain 20 pounds since the hospital stay which i have never been able to do. Wonder what id happenin here.
