Is shortness of breath and blurred vision due to enlarged ventricle ?

Occasional cough related to MI - short of breath - occasional Blurred vision I have occasional blurred vision that lasts for few minutes. what is the cause of this? 3 years before I had MI, at the age of 14 developed arthritis with a bang of RA i.e. Rheumatic Fever .Now I am 63. The Current Cardiologist says I have anaemia. Legs get swollen if I sit few hours or stand for few hours. When I sleep I have to get up abruptly, as I get frequent Muscle cramps on my legs esp. above the ankles of leg. After MI I am suffering from short of breath. After conducting computer scanning angiogram I think doctors say I have one enlarged left ventricle .

I was at work doing my regular job duties. I became short of breath so I sat down for a bit to catch my breath. During me sitting my face went a little numb, my vision went blurry, and I was still short of breath. Should I be concered, or should I be concerned enough to get checked out?
