Posted by bobed @bobed, Jul 20, 2012

I was just diagnosed with CHF. From the research I have done, I am finding everything from rather positive to downright depressing prognosis. Hoping someone out there has some positive experience with controlling this. I f so, please
tell me your story and any tips on improving my health.

Well I have experience real bad chest pains, burning sensations, way worse than “heart Burn” my heart doc says all my tests like ekg are normal, but he dosen’t like this pain i am having, had a echo cartigram done, a stress test treadmill done, but i could possibly have a blockage or somthing…, so he is gonna take a real live pic of my heart and found out what’s really going on, at first my insur did not want to pay for it, but he insisted, and pushed, and they gave in, by the way what dose CHF stand for? I am learning so so much medical conditions from Mayo Clinic Blog site….
