Hello Ms Mbugua,
Heart murmur with atrial fibrillation is a significant heart condition. Sore calves with chest discomfort
, especially shortness of breath
for 5 days, gives a suspicion of a venous thrombosis
(clotting of blood) with lodging of small clots in the lung (pulmonary embolism
). This is of greater importance, if you were on oral contraceptives. You need tests to rule out lung involvement at the earliest. No over-the-counter medications will help you.
The abdominal discomfort and belching may or may not be related to the main problem. What medicines are you on? Have you stopped any clot preventing drugs prescribed for atrial fibrillation? Worrying point is the arm discomfort, which stays there. Probability of a clot from fibrillating atrium getting lodged in a major limb artery also needs consideration.
Do not delay any further. Get proper medical help
Wish you a speedy recovery and thanks for using Healthcaremagic.
