Mon, Jul 13 9:52am · Pericardial Resection/Window - HFpEF, Pericardial Effusion in Heart & Blood Health

I have exactly the same issue. I have had a persistent cough for a few years now, yet they seem to think it’s not caused by my diastolic heart failure with preserved ejection. I have had a chest x-ray that was clear. I went to an ENT who thinks it might be silent reflux and I’ve been taking Pepcid for many months with no change at all in the cough. I really wonder if it isn’t a side effect of the blood pressure medication, my first one was lisinopril which made me cough like crazy. I switched then to losartan , and then eventually to valsartan. Although the cough was never as bad as on lisinopril, it has remained ever since.

What are Hy Vee low p low k potatoes? You sound like a walking book of recipes for a low potassium diet. Come cook at my house!! I’m going crazy trying to figure out what I can eat other than white rice and apples!!

Have you had your tear ducks plugged? It completely changed my life overnight years ago. For the better.

I have discussed surgery and they feel that there is a high risk that I’ll end up worse than before. They say that surgery is advisable only when you have a very large degree of turn in the eye, and I do not. I have enough to give me double vision but not enough to warrant the risk of surgery. I am seeing one of the best in the country believe me

No it will not. I've accepted all this years ago.

I do and it's not reversible. Unless and until they can regenerate dead nerves. I don't expect that to happen in my lifetime…

I asked about that and they said that they would probably not help. Presumably the nerves that control that muscle are dead and or dying and unfortunately they haven’t quite figured out how to regenerate nerves yet!
