Hi all. I am new to the group. I am still in the...

  • Hi all. I am new to the group. I am still in the diagnostic part of my illness, so nothing is definite yet. However, so far, I have been diagnosed (by EKG) as having sinus bradycardia (HR = 42 bpm). I have also been diagnosed by x-ray only as having calcified aorta and moderately enlarged heart. I have been feeling dizzy for some time now, with it being worse at some times than others. I have shortness of breath and extensive fatigue. Sometimes I feel faint; but I have not fainted, thus far. I have been experiencing lots of confusion and I feel strangely when driving, like I can't react appropriately in traffic (I'm scared to drive).

    I have also had a chest x-ray that shows calcifications in my lungs (upper and middle right lobe). I also have calcified left hilar lymph nodes. None of this may have anything to do with my heart issues; but it has been diagnosed at the same time.

    I am wondering if any and/or all of this is something to be very concerned about. I don't won't to be overly concerned; but I do want to address any and all things that may need attention. Any advice from the support group is very welcomed!

    Thank you for letting me be a part of you guys!

    Tina

    PS. Are there doctors on this site, as well; or is this support group all lay-persons, like me?

    Hello Tina
    I hope my forcibly -delayed response could still be of benefit.
    Lung calcifications are usually due to some type of inflammation-infectious( mycobacterium, fungal), immune( sarcoidosis), or more rarely tumorous. Unless v extensive, they usually are mostly asymptomatic, pulmonary wise. The etiologic agents though may produce extrapulmonary effects that may cause varied symptoms, ex if there is anemia, etc..This needs investigation.

    Your fatigue and near fainting could be due to sinus bradycardia, while if there is a definite Aortic stenosis it can also contribute to those symptoms. An echodoppler ultrasound, and Holter monitor EKG, and maybe more profound cardiac investigation, allows for a more definite diagnosis. Blood electrolytes perturbation may also contribute to any of your symptoms, and deserve checking.
    In collaboration with your physician, address those points, and you may keep us posted.

  • Tina,

    Tina,

    Sorry for taking to long to replied.

    One of the many symptoms of Aortic Stenosis - Arrhythmias is shortness of breath, mental confusion, forgetfulness , fatigue, heart fluttering. Among others.

    What I prescribed is a remedy whose objective is to help nourish the heart, help to assist in blood circulation that can cause heart problems, give you a sense of calmness and a peace mind, remove the stress you are under, improve your cognitive skills, and above all Tina, a better focus with your Heavenly Father(prayer)
