Heart problems and wheezing

Common Questions and Answers about Heart problems and wheezing


Avatar n tn In the 'non-rhythm' catergory are things such as panic attacks, other various heart problems and muscle spasms. I am at a loss to think of any link to the radiation therapy. The best advice is to discuss this with your internist and follow up with any testing he/she recommends.
Avatar n tn Well here I am with a cat who has used up her nine lives and my savings account and is still wheezing and I feel its louder but she still runs around and plays all the time never coughs and I rarley see hairballs since she is still half hairless from the surgery and allergic reaction nearly 4 mnths ago. I dont know what to do I seemed to have gotten the sickest cat in the world I have her on a special diet vet gave vitamins and she is spoiled rotten.
Avatar m tn Wheezing is a sign that a person may be having breathing problems and is found in lung conditions like asthma,bronchiectasis,bronchiolitis or bronchitis,pneumonia,emphysema (COPD),smoking,medications (particularly aspirin), heart failure (cardiac asthma) and sometimes in GERD. I sincerely advise you to consult a physician and get yourself evaluated as auscultation is mandatory to confirm these sounds as wheeze( and not ronchi or pleural rub)and find out the cause of this wheeze.
Avatar n tn A ventilating machine can push air into the lungs at a greater pressure than the patient can and gives them a huge chance of recovery. When a patient is laying down and relaxed, the heart doesn't have to work very hard at all to get enough oxygen to the brain and this is why I think its more likely the lungs. Are you sure its the heart?
Avatar n tn Can you please tell me how they are related and how I can protect my mother from further heart problems which can be caused by astham/wheezing?
Avatar f tn It would be best to have a chest X-Ray and cardiac ultrasound to make sure there are no age related changes or heart problems. Heart, lung, and cough medications are quite effective and should be able to help.
Avatar n tn , along with some blood tests. It could be allergies since it comes and goes or digestive problems. An antihistamine may help with the wheezing, along with taking good walks with fresh air will help build and clear your lungs .
448723 tn?1301458558 On Thursday night I experienced an erratic heartbeat (for the 2nd time) and it went for around 8 hours. My heart was jumping all over the place and alternated between feeling like someone was kicking it and like someone was standing on it. At times it was difficult to breathe, and I did quite a bit of involuntary wheezing. Of course I should have gone to the hospital at the time, but I didn't want anything to be wrong.
Avatar m tn 0 that is the stuff that too high will damage and kill the heart so off and on check it stress lack of sleep etc raise it but as long as you within rang nothing to worry about if out of rang work with doc
Avatar m tn I am still wheezing and having exhaustion/cognitive problems. I tried steroids but they didn't stop the wheezing but I think I need more prednisone to breathe. Is my lung obstruction becoming fixed because of airway remodeling??
Avatar f tn my one cat that is now deceased had some heart problems and he made a wheezing sound when he tried to hissss....caused from being short of breath.
Avatar f tn This is more of a dry cough with wheezing at times or both....With this, sometimes the Heart shows enlargement,but it is not a Heart Problem! It's from lack of oxygen through the respiratory system.....Steroids are useful as needed for allergy season that can be a trigger.....Dust mites in the house affect this a lot (Especially in the winter when the heat is on and the house is closed up tight).......It seems they breath better outside.....
Avatar m tn I think the reason why we get "paranoid" about heart desease (especially heart desease as it is a very important organ!) is when you read about young people - younger or just a little bit older than you - that get heart attacks and heart deseases, etc. we wonder: "why do bad things happen to good people and what if I'm next?" In my own experience: if you are worried about something then get it checked out.
Avatar f tn She snores quite loudly and sometimes I hear wheezing. We are at our wits end and hate seeing her so miserable. I had her retested for the Giardia last year and it was negative. I don't want to put her on steroids, but the vet said that would be the next step. She is on a high quality grain-free diet, which includes Brothers Turkey and egg allergy formula kibble, cooked chicken and green beans, mixed together with a little organic chicken broth. She also gets 1 teasp.
Avatar n tn --regular asthma flare ups until early 20's (exercised induced, allergy related, full on wheezing and tight chest, on oral steroids for extended periods of time as teenager) --as adult (now 36 yrs old) have had minimal flare ups, usually related to seasonal allergies --moved to North Carolina last August, immediate allergy problems and subsequent sinus infection --hoarse voice originally attributed to sinus infection, later learned was a paralyzed vocal cord --waited 10 months to give nerve f
Avatar f tn Hi everyone, I am a 25 year old female and I have had some problems with my heart for the last 6 months or so. I can often feel my heart beating, have chest discomfort/tightness which can last for days at a time, and occasionally have episodes which last for an hour or two where I feel dizzy and faint and can feel my heart thumping. Occasionally this is also accompanied by a racing heartbeat, 160-180bpm. I feel very tired all the time and find it hard to concentrate.
Avatar n tn I personally don't know much about induction delays so hopefully someone will come on and explain them but what I have learned with my own heart rhythm issues is if your heart is generally healthy and structurally normal most heart rhythm issues are of no concern and are generally met with a keep an eye on things approach. Form the sounds of it your heart appears to be pretty healthy and your ectopic beats are isolated enough to not be too concerning.
Avatar m tn I am a 59 year old T2 diabetic male with stent, sleep apnea, and pacemaker/defibrillator. Get a another doctor who can schedule tests for your heart and a trip to a sleep study lab. Been through all that. I had a heart attack, without the classic symptoms, four years ago. A 90% blockage necessitated a stent. I also developed congestive heart failure that led to the heart device implant. I'm just recovering from the surgery but can feel some progress.
Avatar m tn My daughter (15) has been taking asthma medication since she was 12 yrs. She is a normal 15 yr. old tom boy - she loves being outside. She has recently had "attacks" where she says she doesn't feel well and ends up loosing consciousness. The first time it happened she was out for a good 20 minutes. This can happen at school, at home or, most recently, at the skating rink. She is sometimes light sensitive before the "attack".
Avatar n tn I have seen some people who have been exposed to mold and then ended up with health problems afterwards. IMO, it is important that you see a physician and get properly diagnosed and treated right away. You may want to consider seeing a Naturopath physician as well. Good luck !
Avatar f tn OK, For starters, you need to rule out Heart Problems....The xray will not only show the heart, but also the lungs...This is important.... With Heart Disease, the weak heart cannot pump as well...Fluid builds into the lungs causing the cough..The cough is usually MOIST like they're choking on congestion...Actually, they are...The cough is worse in the mornings & during periods of running, playing & excitement....Fluid will show in an x ray of the lungs.....
Avatar m tn My symptoms are chronic and worse over time, they are mainly irregular heart rate (always high at rest and sit in the morning around 120 and as soon as I walk around the house and take my shower it can run as high than 160...
Avatar m tn My symptoms start with front and post nasal drip which is a reddish color, and sinus pressure. Later I have upper chest infection, wheezing, and when the buildup in my chest gets bad enough, major breathing problems (especially when trying to sleep), and spasmodic coughing to the point of unconsciousness at times. I lost my job and my medical coverage and have been taking Prednisone, 15mg per day, as a stop gap.
Avatar n tn Also I must mention that I have sinus and allergy problems and am seeing an ENT doc and she has me on Allerx which seems to help. Like I said I notice that we all have similarities in symptoms and I know Ive said a lot, but let's all follow up with our doc and try and stay positive and not think the absolute worst I have a strange feeling that we all are experiencing physical systoms of ANXIETY but I will keep you posted on my results lets just pray that all is well!
Avatar n tn Other causes are anemia, GERD, hypoglycemia or low sugar and some endocrine problems. Heart problems too can cause dizziness. For heart problems you need to consult a cardiologist, get a 12 lead EKG, ECHO or any other tests that the cardiologist advises. Hope this helps. Do let me know if there is any thing else and keep me posted. Take care!
Avatar n tn I'm a 22yr old healthy female, don't smoke cigarettes, smoke hookah on a social basis (2-3 times a month) for the last 3 years. I've had a history of wheezing when I was a child and was put on a nebulizer. As of yesterday, I feel like I have to take deep breaths to breath normally and my heart feels like it's racing but when I take my pulse its 80beats/min which is normal.
Avatar n tn Pulomnary issues such as asthma, bronchiectasis, bronchiolitis, bronchitis or emphysema as well as gastroesophageal reflux disease, heart failure, infection, medication side effect, and even smoking. Sitting in an area where there is moist, heated air may help relieve some symptoms. If it persists, further evaluation and additional diagnostic tests may be requested. Take care and do keep us posted.
Avatar n tn I've been having anxiety problems for a couple of years now. I'm nearly 17, and I've had heart palpatations, pins and needles shortness of breath and other anxiety symptoms for a while now. I've also suffered from frequent urination for years. Just recently, the shortness of breath has been getting worse, and I've noticed that I've been wheezing a lot too.
Avatar f tn Before the operation I did have pain at the top of my chest (just below the collar bone) that extended into the shoulder during exercise. My heart was checked and that was fine, pain still comes even after the op. The shortness of breath has been worse since the op, sometimes I feel like I just can't catch my breath and try not to panic. Could be because of the anesthetic .
Avatar n tn It seemed dry inside, it hurt my diaphragm or my lungs and then somewhat my heart. It is very hard to explain. I went to the doctors and they told me that I had asthma. I was given an inhaler, but it is not working for me. I know it cannot be asthma, and my mother doesn't believe so either. She thinks it has to do with anxiety. Now at every basketball game after playing for a while I all of a sudden can't breath and it hurts right under my rib cage. What is it that is causing this?
