I had a heart catheter done yesterday they said my blood vessels in my heart were constricting and having spasm in them causing me chest pain all the time.I woke up in severe pain this morning,they went through my wrist and it didnt work so they cut my groin,I called my DR and told them i was in severe pain,the DR didnt call me no pain medication in,they told me to take nitro every time my chest hurt,how can someone take nitro a dozen times a day?I dont think you should and hes not giving no medication for my blood vessels until i go back in 2 weeks for my follow up.I would like to know what i can do,i dont think this is right.the DR created this pain im having and hes not doing anything about it.View Thread
Hi Dr. Beckerman: The slideshow on Afib has nice graphics however the text (important stuff) is completely unreadable). Please have your graphics staff fix this. BTW the bottom of the graphics names you as having reviewed it.
I was diagnosed with a 4.4 cm TAA of the ascending aorta in early November, 2014 after an echo to investigate an abnormal EKG. [br>[br>Shortly thereafter, I started having high blood pressure readings and I was prescribed two BP meds, which I have taken religiously. My BP is now perfect. [br>[br>This thing has never been far from my mind since it was diagnosed. I'm sure all of you can relate to that! [br>[br>Fast forward to now:[br>[br>After having some chest pain last Wednesday, I drove myself to the ER.[br>[br>I had a CT angiogram in the ER, and I was horrified to find that my aneurysm is now measuring 4.9 cm at the level of the sinuses of Valsalva in the aortic root. The ascending aorta was 4.2. [br>[br>Due to my familial history (uncle, grandmother, her father have all had aortic aneurysms), I have now reached the surgical threshold and my cardiologist, whom I love, had referred me to a cardiothoracic surgeon. Yikes. [br>[br>Unfortunately, I can't get in until the 30th and I'm pretty frightened. At the same time, I'm sick of living with this time bomb and I'm SO ready to be rid of it.
Waiting three weeks for answers to my questions is pretty unbearable, so I'm hoping that there are some answers out there in WebMDLand. [br>[br>I'm a 49 year old woman, overweight but otherwise healthy, never smoked, cut out caffeine completely a few months ago.[br>[br>My questions...
As described above, the 11/2014 echo showed that the aneurysm was 4.4 cm. The 03/2015 angiogram showed it as 4.9 cm. 0.5 cm in 4 months, or thereabouts. I understand that comparing these two test results is like apples and oranges, but how do I know how much it's really grown? I know that "rapid growth rate" indicates surgery. Has this grown rapidly? I would think so, but I don't have an MD after my name. [br>[br>My angiogram also showed mild cardiomegaly. Is this common with an aneurysm of the ascending aorta? It seems like it would be since the heart is is trying to push blood thru an inflated balloon. Will it get better after repair? [br>[br>Sneeze and chest pain. This developed several months before I was diagnosed. I sneezed tonight and the pain was intense for about 20 to 30 seconds. I'm already frightened.....things like this don't help.[br>[br>Are there any forums out there on this subject? I'm trying to educate myself and I've devoured everything pertinent on Google, which is not your friend. I seem to remember reading a forum with more detailed histories and surgical experiences, but I don't remember where.[br>[br>Does anyone have experience with Baylor Heart Hospital in Plano, TX? [br>[br>What goes into scheduling such a major procedure? I read something that said they had to have cardiac cath before scheduling surgery. What is that and why? [br>[br>How long should I plan on being out of work when I have surgery? I have a sedentary job without lifting.
I'm a 41 year old male, 5'10", 185 pounds (or 85 kg, 178 cm in metric), quite physically active (muscle training and aerobic activities 4 days a week, 1 to 2 hours per session). I've been diagnosed with AVR since the first time I had an echochardiogram when I was 29. It's been stable (and considered mild) until July last year, when it was deemed moderate. I had so far no symptoms at all, but since last month I started feeling a bit of chest discomfort. Last week symptoms worsened, so now I have (though not all the time): [br>[br>- numbness or tingling in extremities (mostly right hand, but today I felt it at my feet after sleeping a lot) [br>- palpitation (I can feel my heart beating if I lie on my left side). I don't know if I felt this before but I read it correlates to a worsening of AVR [br>- mild shortness of breath (it feels like a stuffy nose when it actually isn't) [br>- ocasional neck / upper back / left or right arm pain [br>- chest pain (sometimes worse at the left side, sometimes worse at the right side) [br>[br>Ever since the pain started I've been measuring my heart rate and blood pressure, and they're pretty normal. Actually my resting heart rate is very low (around 50, sometimes less), while the blood pressure only very occasionally has been close to 130, being mostly around 115 / 65. [br>[br>Since I was becoming very anxious about it I went to the ER yesterday. I had an ECG, blood test and chest x-ray, and all of them were fine. Heart rate was good but blood pressure was a little high. The doctor said I should follow up with my cardiologist, so I have an appointment with him in a week from now. Since it's still a week away, I'd like to hear some additional opinions about my case. My main concerns are: [br>[br>- is it "normal" that AVR worsens this fast or at an "early" age ? [br>- could it be that my good physical condition actually worsened the regurgitation? I've read in a study ("Recommendations for the management of individuals with acquired valvular heart diseases who are involved in leisure-time physical activities or competitive sports") that bradycardia actually might worsen AVR, and that has made me afraid that I've been doing it all wrong... [br>- since I don't seem to have arrhythmia, dizziness or high blood pressure, could it be that are alternate treatments to valve replacement? [br>- will the type of treatment have an effect on my ability to perform endurance sports afterwards ? [br>[br>I must say that cycling and running are a big part of my lifestyle, and I am scared to death at the idea that I might have to give up these activities. On the other hand, nobody craves to have an open heart surgery, specially considering that replacement heart valves don't last so long ... therefore, I'll be happy to hear any opinions or stories about coping with this issue. [br>[br>Thanks a lot, [br>MarcView Thread
I am a 75 year old male who has been diagnosed with a-fib and diastolic heart failure. What is a best estimate as to the number of years I may have should all things remain the same. What about overseas travel?View Thread

About a month ago I had an EKG done saying that my heart rate was a little low, I'm 18 5'10 and 116lbs. I'm underweight but currently on a weight gain diet, and have just recently made major changes to my eating habits. Until yesterday I've felt fine, but started having chest pains and breathing seems a little more difficult than usual. It's gone off and on since yesterday. Should I be concerned? Could this also be from eating a lot more than usual?View Thread
In the last week we've gotten a lot of heart news, so I thought it may be helpful to provide everyone withe a little round up in case you missed any of these:
Veggie-Rich Diets May Mean Lower Heart Rates : A new large study found that those whose diets were about 70% plant based (whole grains, beans, vegetables, fruits, and nuts) had 20% lower odds of dying from heart disease than those whose diets were over 50% meat, eggs, dairy, and fish.
Mediterranean Diet May Cut Heart Risks : People who closely followed a Mediterranean diet were 47% less likely to develop heart disease than those who did not. The study also found the diet was more protective against heart disease than physical activity.
