Chest pain, SOB and edema.....

Posted by @chevy in Heart & Blood Health, Jan 31, 2013

Chest pain, shortness of breath and lower extremity edema. I have been in and out of the hospital 4 times in the past 7 months. Test out the behind, ekgs, echos, cath lab, upper gi's, ultra sounds. You name the test, I've probably had it done. I finally had my primary care dr send a referral to Mayo, which they have run alot of the same test. Veins are good, pulmonologist says lungs are good.
I go back this week to hear from the cardiologist and internal medicine. We will see? Am I just going nuts? One would think the ER wouldn't keep admitting you if nothing was really wrong, right?

Did you also do the sonogram of the artery of the leg?

yes. Just got the results from all the test and all the dr's state it's because I'm overweight. Never mind that this stuff started before I gained the weight. I gained about 30 lbs since I quit smoking. Did find out that I have CKD. I must be losing my mind.
