Apr 24, 2017 · Pulmonary hypertension in Lung Health

Hi Dave, welcome to the group. Such a great source of information. My borderline pulmonary hypertension was found doing an echo. I was told I also have sleep apnea and I must wear a mask at night to keep the PH from getting worse. The sleep study showed my heart had to work too hard when my oxygen went down.

Thank you for your info. I also have diminishjed kidney function and the doctor was trying to keep my blood pressure as close to normal as possible for that condition along with the diastolic dysfunction. I have checked all the blood meds out and they all seem to help with the diastolic dysfunction. Could you tell me your concerns about taking the 4 meds? The doctor who prescribed them was the nephrologist who also consulted with the cardiologist. It is all very tricky. Thank you for any additional input you have.

I too was diagnosed with diastolic heart failure. I was also prescribed Carvedilol. I also take Diltiazem ,Hydralazine, and Triamterine for high blood pressure. I have taken Lipitor for years. I would love some expert info on this condition to make sure I am taking the right meds. My family also is loaded with heart issues.

Mar 20, 2017 · Feeling Skipped Beats, Palpitations: What could this possibly be? in Heart Rhythm Conditions

I will be anxious to see what your cardiologist says. When I wake in the mornings I feel a very pronounced heartbeat. I also have palpitations especially in the evenings. I recently was diagnosed with borderline pulmonary hypertension after having an echo and did a sleep study and now wear a CPAP at night. My cardiologist wants me to wear a heart monitor for 24 hours to see what’s going on with the palpitations.

I was told that my shoulder was basically gone due to arthritis. I had a reverse total shoulder surgery which was very successful. I had over 4 months of PT but my shoulder is pretty much 100 % now and I have no pain.
