Found this site and did a quick look and didn't appear to be a symptom, it's more shortness of breath issues or feeling like you have cold or flu. If your doctor haven't already done so ask for a EKG and or a ultrasound to check the heart just to be on the safe side.

Is there a connection between congestive heart failure and kidney problems? My hubby was in ICU for several days with a very rapid heartbeat and very low BP. They diagnosed it as congestive heart failure, and he was treated, then moved to a regular hospital room. Now the cardiologist is calling in a kidney specialist. What is the connection? It is a rotten shame the doctors will not tell us what is going on. Can you help?

My grandfather is 89 years old and is in heart failure. The opening in his arotic valve is about the size of a pin hole and he cannot pass blood through it. He has been in and out of the hospital 8 times since december and is in congestive heart failure. When we found out about this 4 years ago, we did not do the surgery because it was too high risk but now we have no choice but to do it. What are the chances of recovery?

I walked upstairs and was slightly out of breath. I sat down and noticed my heart rate was elevated but no pain or discomfort. I then noticed I could see my heart rate in my eyes as it caused them to pulse. I'm just wondering if that is a problem.
