have you told your doctor about these symptoms? my father in law was very similar in symptoms to you a few years after having a quad bypass.
2 doctors dismissed him and told him he had the flu; his symptoms kept on over the wknd so he went to see his regular cardiologist after the wknd was over and he found it was Congestive heart failure.
He was put in the hospital and put on Lasix which worked wonders and helped with the swelling and he's still on it which seems to be helping still.
It sounds like something you need to talk to your doctor about. I agree with Mom2four86, it does sound like some form of heart failure. Take care, Ally
Thanks so much for your advice. I will make an appointment with my doctor and let you know how things go.
Great! Keep us posted. Ally
Hi, saw my nurse-practitioner (don't have a family doctor), she ordered blood tests, told me that this may be the "new normal" for me. Hmmmm....maybe, but I don't know.
Making an appointment with cardiologist, see what he says. I'll keep you posted.
Thanks again, Carly
I have mentioned twice to my primary dr. about the blood looking at my feet when sitting or laying down. She wasn't concern because she said I had a pulse in my feet. My feet actually turn red or blue. It bothers me! I also have multiple sclerosis but am now off meds for it due to my age of 70.
