I have bad swelling in my legs and feet, will my swelling be alleviated if a biventricular pacemaker is put in?

I am a 91 year old male with congestive heart failure, on medicine for it and have an existing pacemaker that was put in in 2012.

I have bad swelling in my legs and feet, no energy, sleeping issues, and just don’t feel good.

I have the option of 1. getting a new battery in my existing pacemaker (has 6-7 months left)
2. Getting a biventricular pacemaker put in
3. Doing nothing
My question is: 1. Will my swelling be alleviated with the biventricular pacemaker put in?
2. If I chose to do nothing, what will typically happen when my battery runs down or out?

I have a crushing chest pain making it difficult to breath?

I have a crushing chest pain that feels like constant pressure making it difficult to breath. I am coughing up phlegm which has sometimes had streaks of blood in it. I also got chills and then it goes into hot flushes. I am worried as to what this might be as It came on all of a sudden it is causing me to become very fatigued. I don’t want this to impact on my daily life as I have children to support. I am usually a generally healthy person who eats a variety of a diet.

I feel my heart pounding with a little dizziness, am I having a heart attack or a heart problem?

My name is (—-) and I’m 22 years old. For the past few weeks I have been feeling strange. My heart is pounding like if it want to jump out of my chest. It lasts a few minutes and it stops. It happens a few times per day. On some days zero. I also feel dizzy sometimes. I also have been stressed lately and having sleeping problems. I sleep bad. 4 or 5 hours per day. Normally I sleep about about 9. Do I have a heart problem? Is this a heart attack?

For the past year I’ve had heart palpitations on and off, this is anything to worry about?

Hi there,
My name is (—). For the past while, probably a year I’ve had heart palpitations on and off, It feels like a beat is skipped in my chest and gives me a fright. Some days never and one day recently at least once every hour. I suffer with anxiety on and off, have had counseling, hypnotherapy etc which I’m continuing with. But I’ve read that anxiety can give palpitations? But when I get one I get very anxious so quite a vicious cycle. I have a massive fear of death, I also don’t like being apart from my fiancé, so working 3 weeks away at a time, having a train, a small plane and a helicopter for a commute to work doesn’t help things. These palpitations can come when.at rest, lying down, sitting, or during exercise (I’ve noticed more recently). I’ve also read exercise can cause palpitations. I was just wondering if this is anything to worry about or is it due to my anxiety? I’m not going to collapse due to a heart attack from them?

Any help very much appreciated

My 1 month old daughter has a congenital heart disease and needs heart surgery, can it wait one year?

My 1 month old daughter has a congenital heart disease named – transposition of great arteries with vsd.
I bring her to a govt. Hosp. Doctors put her on oxygen for two weeks. Now from last two weeks they had removed her oxygen and now she is breathing well. Now we bring her back home she looks normal but some time her lips, ears, hands and feet toes get blue.
She is breathing well, sleeping well. Her mother feeding her regularly. She seems perfect she only cries when she is hungry or when her body exposed to air. While crying she got too much blue.
Doctors said it’s not possible to do her heart surgery bcoz she is too young. They tried too do angioplasty but didn’t succeed bcoz her veins are too thin. Doctors said let her grow a bit like up to 1 year. After it will be safe to do her surgery. Other wise bring her to any other country (which i cannot afford).
I just want to ask that Is it ok to keep her like this for one year without any treatment?
Please give me the suggestion that what should i do now
(please excuse me for my poor English)

I have Atrial fibrillation ( AFib or AF), can a car accident have caused it?

I’m 77 yrs old but had been in great physical shape, very active in sports, biking, & around the house & yard, etc. Then I was injured in a freak accident 8/30/17 when a car crashed into a building where I was a customer, sending me to emergency vascular surgery for compartment syndrome (R. calf.) I spent 4 days in hospital, had 2 surgeries in that period, & am now assigned to Physical Therapy for several mos. About 10 days after the accident, my vascular surgeon referred me to a cardiologist for heartbeat concerns just noticed by him; I’m now diagnosed with A. Fib, on blood thinners for rest of my life, & had a cardioversion in 10/2017. My cardiologist says because I hadn’t had an EKG prior to my accident, he can’t say that the AFib was caused by the accident & the resulting horrific stress (for example, I was told by the ER doc that my leg might be amputated, had to undergo gen. anesthesia, of which I am very leery, & have been forced to spend more time idle in the last 3 mo. than ever in my life – I NEED to be active.)

Prior to my accident, my only health issues were hypertension (well-controlled via meds) & a bum knee; I’d been seeing my primary care doc at least annually.

Do you feel the accident may be implicated in my 9/2017 diagnosis of A Fib?

My heart beats feel funny/ inconsistent bpm goes down to around 35 bpm?

I usually have a low bpm usually in the 60s. I have noticed in the last few days that my heart beats feel funny/ inconsistent. It’s not all the time but it’s getting a little more frequent. I have a bpm monitor so I’ve been monitoring myself today. When I feel the inconsistent beats my bpm goes down to around 35 bpm give or take and then a few minutes later it shoots up to around 78 bpm. A few minutes after that it goes back to around 65-68 which is normal for me. Should I seek medical attention ASAP?

I had an aortic heart valve transplant and before that, my B/P was normal, but since the transplant, my blood pressure is running on the high side?

I had an aortic heart valve transplant and before that, my B/P was normal, but since the transplant, my blood pressure is running on the high side…So my heart Doctor changed me from 20 mgs. of lisiinipril to 40 mgs P/day…It doesn’t seem to have helped that much soo I wondered if, by me taking 20 mgs, in the AM and 20 mgs in the PM would not be good enough and that I should take the 40 mgs. alll at once in the AM?…Would that make a difference? My heart Doctor is on vacation so, thought I would ask you folks what you think…
