aortic stenosis and regurgitation

Posted by @nanadoris, Nov 16, 2017

My cardiologist has been monitoring me for about 2 years and at my last echo it was a 1.1. I have days when I’m so tired for no apparent reason to the point that I just sit in my recliner most days. Has anyone else had this problem?

@nanasova You mean the recliner or the echo….Sorry. I am in my recliner about half of all the time I am awake.

Is Aortic stenosis the same as a calcified aorta? I have had stenosis in my neck for several years and have been told recently that I have a calcified aorta.

I should have said aortic valve stenosis and regurgitation.

Hello @nanadoris,

Welcome to Connect. I’d like to introduce you to @divmercy @ch246cf10 @carlyne @beagen06 @mimi68 @lynnkay1956 @ronbee @eugeneo @shakuni11, Mentor @hopeful, and invite them to join this discussion as they might have some insights to share.

Also, I encourage you to view this information from Mayo Clinic about aortic valve stenosis: https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/aortic-stenosis/symptoms-causes/syc-20353139

@nanadoris, have you told your cardiologist about the fatigue? Unfortunately, fatigue seems to be a symptom of aortic valve stenosis; may I ask if you are taking any medication that could possibly cause you to be tired, as a side effect?
