Thought that it was interesting. My daughters words, but true. A cardiologists sees just heart and veins, a podiatrist sees feet, but we have more than that we are like a machine with many parts. There are times, while healing one area another area suffers. All meds have after effects, have you ever watched on TV where they are permotting a certain medication and they tell you how wonderful it is. But in the next sentence they say. But it may cause kidney failure it may cause headaches and dizziness. We know our body better than anyone else does.
We do have specialists for a reason but we need to try and help ourselves somewhat in holistic ways. Like change a diet, exercise, avoid stress, change our life style. Be positive. Any illness requires that the body mind and soul are in harmony. Listen to speakers, researchers,. Hay house has many good speakers that are very knowedgable. We need to try and help ourselves. Lately I have been watching biblical secrets and how the Bible speaks to us about healing.it doesn't hurt to listen it opens your mind to so much more that is available and knowledge to help ourselves. May God be with all of you

There is a great site anyone can visit on Facebook and Youtube, its called york cardiology, the Cardiologist is really good at explaining heart disease in layman's terms. He himself has Afib so he knows his subject lol. I can thoroughly recommend taking a look, there are numerous videos on YouTube with new ones appearing too.
I would be most surprised if anybody wasn't a little more reassured on their condition after viewing his videos and btw he takes emails.

Since mine started 20 years ago at such a young age I was very anxious. the first couple years I was at the ER with any unusual pain. My mom said every time we passed a hospital I'd think I needed to go lol. Hopefully I wasn't that bad but cardiac rehab helped me so much and had worked at the hospital and knew the rehab nurses and some of the other patients so I think that it made it somewhat easier. Went back to work after a year, against doctor's advice, but it did help me to do something again and get back to some since of normalcy. These day's I can still get kind of anxious if I start having some odd chest or arm pain or pressure or heart rhythm starts acting up but my cardiologist has like a second since when I have a problem and seems to know if it's serious or not.

I just kinda go with the flow... try not to over think things...take my meds... do what I can when I feel like it... and rest when I need to.

Sometimes I feel that my family ignores the fact that I have heart disease. Unless I mention it, they don't recognize it. It makes me more anxious.
