Mar 12, 2018 · Heart failure and enlarged heart in Heart & Blood Health

I’m 38 years old and recently I’vs been diagnosed with congestive heart failure and an enlarged heart. I get a lot of discomfort in my chest, pressure, like my chest feels heavy. The pain radiates to my shoulders up to my neck and my jaw feels tight. My left arm and hand gets tingly and feels numb. A few days ago I went to the ER for chest pain. They took some blood and checked my heart enzyme levels told me everything was fine. The next day I went to see my primary for a follow up and she mentioned that my heart enzyme levels were slightly elevated. I don’t understand what is going on with my heart or how I even devolped heart failure. I don’t know what to expect and it seems like the doctors just give me the run around instead of explaining. Anyone out there with heart failure what are you symptoms, what type of treatment are you on?
