I ve recently gone to a doctor and was explained that my feeling of my heart skipping a beat was actually a normal arrythmia associated with caffeine intake. I ve dropped my intake to very little amounts. When can I expect the arrythmia to subside?
What is SAM, is it important to have surgery ? What happens when your aorta valve is flapping? I have been told i have arrhythmia and cardiomiopathy , months ago and today told i have SAM. Are these serious enough to have surgery soon or can it be put off until July 6 ?
My mom is making to to an appointment to talk about my heart. Heart attrymia runs in my family and my great grandpa died of an epposode. I have been having issues with attrymia for the past year and when I have an epposed I sometimes get to the point were its hard to breath. My mom just told me that I might not beable to do sports. I m just scared that she is right
Yesterday I went to the ER for presyncope. I ve always had pvcs and I was told they were benign. Yesterday I was sitting and relaxing when I felt a hard beat, then no beat for several seconds, my vision blacked so I put my head between my legs, when I raised my head all I saw were starts. Er doctor said my potassium was a little low and sent me home. Everything I read on the internet says this could be a fatal heart arhythmia v should I be concerned? I have no history of heart disease myself but a strong family history of early onset heart disease. My blood pressure and cholesterol are good and I had a stress test 3 years ago that only showed an abnormal raise in blood pressure.
Severe spinal stenosis pain - now using 100 mg of Fentanyl patch every 72 hours as well as having epidural treatment from anasthesiologist every 3 months for last few years and tramadol up to four times daily. Recently have noticed a pea sized lump in my armpit, a very, itchy skin rash on my legs and arms, which is difficult to keep from scratching under control, continuing difficulty with constipation for which I am using double dosage skin softeners and severe night sweats which make my nightie, sheets and pillows completely soaked. I have also been diagnosed with sleep apnea, using a CPAP nightly, atrial fibrillation and heart arrythmia and a racing heartbeat for which i take blood thinners and appropriate medications prescribed by a heart specialist. I also see a rheumatologist every few months who has diagnosed me with connective tissue disease, fibromyalgia, rheumatic and osteoarthritis for which I take prednisone, methotrexate and tramadeol. I have begun the severe night sweats, the lump in my armpit and the very itchy skin rash quite recently and have not yet informed my doctors as I have not seen them since their development. could you please advise me. Thank you, Marilyn Bouthot, Langley, B.C., Canada .
