Sun, May 19 7:07am · His-pacemaker technique in Heart Rhythm Conditions

Hi, I’m not a dr or specialist but I did see something called “his bundle pacing” and as suggested I would talk to your dr to find out exactly what this procedure is called. My niece had a bundle pack and EF rate of 15 and had to get a defibrillator and meds to help her cause of other issues, and she has what’s called a bundle pack. With your “twist” it made me think it might be similar to her situation. Please, I suggest you check further to see what this is called so you can get a better understanding what your dr. Is talking about. So much info out there it can get confusing. I pray you find answers and wish you the best. I have heart failure and had an EF rate of 30 which improved for now.

Mon, Mar 4 6:57am · Carvedilol in Heart & Blood Health

@judyak I’m sorry to hear that… I was put on Carvedilol at the lowest dose and then raised to 25mg 2x’s a day. Fortunately I’ve had no issues so far. I’ve been on it for several months now. I have read that some people do not tolerate it. In fact my niece, who started it before me, can not take it and had to be put on something else so I thought I might have a problem too.

Sat, Mar 2 6:05am · Severe chest tightness when waking up every morning in Just Want to Talk

@anon56837187 @hamidnaghi I’m not a dr. But just going by some of our experiences. When I saw high titer levels you mentioned it immediately made me think of Valley Fever, usually found here in the west. My husband found out he had it and had high titer reading, but had no other symptoms like people usually do. I don’t know what other symptoms it can cause off the top of my head but thought this might be worth mentioning being you can’t get an answer as to what’s going on. Just a thought Best of luck to both of you on figuring out what’s going on.

Thu, Feb 28 6:37am · Salty Facts – Heart Failure and Sodium in Heart & Blood Health

@kanaazpereira @healthytoday We eat very very little processed foods. We roast our vegetables, and usually make our own meals from scratch. We don’t eat out much..food tastes better homemade….:)) Definitely read labels too. I don’t use the salt shaker normally. I’ll have to look for raw organic celery…thanks for that tip.

Thu, Feb 7 6:23pm · Dialated Cardiomyopathy with decreased EF rate in Heart & Blood Health

@hopeful33250 Yes, it is great news for us. I’m always thankful for everyday, but this type of scare makes you even more grateful! (If thats possible!) lol. My foot healed very well overall, but needs to be “tweaked” again to make it right. Means another 6 weeks or so in a boot and then re-healing again. Not sure now when I’ll do that. It hurts to walk… but, I wear Tommie Copper compressions on feet and Oofa shoes so my walking is pretty pain free… these two items made a huge difference…when there’s a will there’s a way!!!

Thu, Feb 7 5:29pm · Dialated Cardiomyopathy with decreased EF rate in Heart & Blood Health

@hopeful33250 I got my results from muga scan and got very positive news!! My EF is at 47% so nothing to be done at this time. We are very relieved. I’m continuing walking everyday…I believe it helped me. I’ve been chair bound for a bit due to foot surgery, but finally able to walk some. Not stopping!!! Very happy!!!!

Thu, Feb 7 8:11am · Dialated Cardiomyopathy with decreased EF rate in Heart & Blood Health

@hopeful33250 hi thanks so much for asking. I got the scan 30 Jan and actually go for the results later this morning. I’ve been walking daily and hoping that may be helping some. I feel fine so far and did not receive a call from dr. during my wait for results to today so that’s a good sign. I plan to post later…hopefully with positive news. Thanks again!!
