I am on many medications for various illnesses. I am in the process of weaning off prednisone I have a very high inflammation level though out my body my rheumatologist has tried every oral medication on me nothing has reduced the inflammation in my body example. I was on methotrexate and a sulphurlazine plaquinel and the prednisone. I do have Graves’ disease and was well treated for 32 years till now everything went out of whack just they past few months I m also prediabetic. But when I was at the hospital 2 weeks ago they also put me on a low dosage of metformin to reduce. My blood pressure. I am now in my 5 th week of weaning off prednisone I had been on in since April 2018. For rheumatoid arthritis. I also have GERD and have a problem of my stomach empty so on a few meds for those reasons. The water pill I was given 2 weeks ago at emerg was not strong enough so when I went to the follow up appointment they double the dosage I’m sorry I’m all over the place. About meds and heath issues. So now I’m severely hyperthyroid. All this is crazy. As we speak I’m waiting for the hospital to call so I can start dealing with this stiff heart issue thank you for been here I needed someone to tell all this too

Hello. Well I found out that I have a stiff heart a hard way a few weeks ago I woke up and I was wheezing badly. I was a bit dizzy and felt a bit weak as well walking up any stairs knocked the wind out of me also had pain in both arms and shoulder s my husband took me to the hospital they immediately checked me to see if I was having an heart attack. My blood pressure was high the ecg showed no signs of anything bloodwork came back no heart attack they did a chest X-ray and found. Water in my lungs and chest. So they said I was having heart failure I was sent home with water pills saw a follow up dr a few days later they ordered a ultrasound on my heart. And I’m also having thyroid problems was st my endrincoligist yesterday he had access to my hospital records and he saw the echocharogram report he read it then said to me you have a stiff heart. So I’m waiting to hear back from the hospital to go back for a follow up appointment about this echocardiogram
