Hi everyone, I've Had restrictive cardiomyopathy with limited activity since I was 8 yrs old. I'm now 26 and just 3 months ago was given a diagnosis of congestive heart failure and arrhythmia. My activities are even more limited now, even walking is difficult.
I take Bumetanide 4mg but it hardly makes me go to the bathroom (3x a day) however in the 3 months I've Had swelling in ankles, feet and legs around 4 Or 5 times. When I go to a&e they tell me there's no fluid seen on Xrays. Other symptoms alongside swelling are tense and protruding stomach, nausea, vomiting, cough, feeling full, loss of appetite, dry mouth and heavy breathing when lying flat (which gets better when I prop up on 3 pillows).
I see my cardiologist in 2 weeks so till then if anyone can answer would be great.
