Cardiologist 's  Response

I would explain that her symptoms could be related to pulmonary edema or blood pressure fluctuations. For this reason, I recommend increasing the dose of diuretics (water pills) and try to closely monitor her blood pressure values frequently.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Hello, I m 23 years old and I feel like my short term memory loss is failing me. When I plan things i seem to forget about the day / time it was planned and seem to be forgetting a lot of things that get people frustrated and end up frustrating me too. I ve looked up some info online and noticed most responses were sleep related but I can assure you I do not lack sleep, for that matter I sleep well over 10 hours a night without waking up.
