How Can You Have Very Little Fluid And Inflammation And Have Such Serious Symptoms

How Can You Have Very Little Fluid And Inflammation And Have Such Serious Symptoms

Short of breath and chest pain

A MyHeartDiseaseTeam Member said:

Make an appointment with your cardiologist as soon as you can. I still have shortness of breath if I do too much. I've had four bypasses and a new aortic valve. Just listen to your body because it will tell you when you're doing too much. I've survived three heart attacks, 9 heart caths and 7stents.

Now I’m fighting dizziness. Sold my home last month and trying to pack things in boxes. Leaning over too long caused dizziness and I fought hard not to fall and hit my head like I did on July 24. That night I fell coming from the kitchen with my walker, hit what I thought was the door and fell backwards, striking my head on the floor. Had to call my son at 10:30 pm to come pick me up. Had a huge goose egg which he put ice on it every 15 minutes then off 15 minutes. My son did this until 4 a.m. then went home. The hematoma is being absorbed by my body. This morning I landed on half packed boxes, breaking my fall. After a while I was able to get to a chair and pull myself up and get back in bed. I’m 82 and live alone but my son is almost done with my add on to his house and I will be so happy to be close to him. Tomorrow I see my cardiologist. Christian love to all. LoisCarol.
