Avatar f tn I got a stent put in. Probably a problem from the high blood calcium, treatment, and blood pressure all mixed together. Getting ablation, too.

Avatar m tn Atrial septal defect (ASD) is a hole in the wall between the two upper chambers of your heart. Smaller ASD’s may close on its own during infancy or early childhood. However, larger ASD’s can damage the heart and lungs, and contribute to shortened life span. In this case, surgery is necessary for repair to prevent complications. To know more about ASD and its course, it might be best to ask a pediatric cardiologist for medical advice. Hope this helps.
Avatar n tn We have just found out that our children, who have a disorder called primary ciliary dyskinesia (PCD), are at risk for cardiac malformations that might not be picked up in infancy. The children's father has been diagnosed with a transposition issue with his right main coronary artery during a cardiac cath and is scheduled for surgery. Their uncle died suddenly from the same defect at age 44.
Avatar f tn We can also have colds, the flu, cancer, heart problems, vein problems, breathing problems but all those things are not due to MS. Without a doubt I would have myself checked.
Avatar m tn One of my friends has currently been having some puzzling heart problems. She would be sitting in class, and all of a sudden her hear would race. She would immediately report to the infirmary, where the nurse would take her heart beat into record. I think the highest it ever was was pushing 120, almost into 130. It wasn't like she was doing anything physically strenuous. The only other symptom was a slight tingly sensation in her face, no specific part just all over.
Avatar f tn Yes, you “should look into things.” It is not normal to have repeated bouts of fever. RSV in infancy is common and may predispose to asthma or frequent lung infections. You should ask his doctor if there is any sign of lung damage from the RSV. The good news is that, in most instances of RSV resulting in frequent bouts of croup or other respiratory infection, that frequent lung problems with fever are eventually “outgrown.

Avatar n tn Visitation with his Dad. Great-Grandma in hospital...heart problems. No problems.
Avatar m tn s done last year with some improvement in his obstructive breathing. Recently I noted an increase in the frequency of complaints of his 'reflux problems'. Many times during a meal he has to stop, rub his epigaqstric region, (is this chest pain versus dyspepsia?) and sometimes a burp will help.Sometimes he vomits. He has not thrived like his twim brother and so while he grows taller he has no lean body mass. I am wondering if his stenosis is worsening or something else is going on.
448723 tn?1301454958 So DH made me promise to contact the doctor in the morning and explain what had happened and see if I needed to be checked. The midwife said that I needed to come in immediately (when I rang in the morning) and they went over in detail what had happened the night before. The doctor then saw me and sent me for an ECG which they don't expect will hold any answers for me as I was feeling fine by the time the ECG was done.
173939 tn?1333217850 In my family, throughout three generations on my father`s side, there have been six cases of rickets, a general tendency for soft tooth enamel and brittle bones in childhood and some heart attacks despite very healthy lifestyles. I too had rickets in childhood and all symptoms except the heart attack. I have a five-year-old son who seems to have some weakness in bones and teeth as well with one "green-stick-fracture" at age 2 and a sudden bout of cavities at age 3.
Avatar n tn However, as you were told by your cardiologist, it should resolve after closure of the PDA. In the absence of improvement, then there has to be thought given to primary problems with the heart muscle itself, such as a dilated cardiomyopathy (a genetic disorder of the heart muscle) or myocarditis (a viral infection of the heart muscle). Another possible cause could be an anomalous origin of the left coronary artery.

Avatar m tn I have a client who reports such in infancy but her mother was also very abusive and violen and hit her a great deal. Is it possible to have a seizure of such magitude that it would break, crack a vertebrae in the neck as the bones are so flexible in infancy? Thank you so much.
1616953 tn?1443835511 Beth and I are kind of being arms length. I think I've gotta get off the computer or spend more quality time. Got into bed and tried to decode some kind of pattern to my heart irregularity. For a while (Prev night) I thought it had some repeating cycle. Like 8 beats before it skipped then 4 beats for a while then back to 8 and then 16. All really interesting except none of that happened when I started paying attention last night.
528530 tn?1212766130 Since she was diagnosed so late in life, what is her outlook? She's on her second medication now...the Atenolol made her uncontrollably tired, moody, irritable, she was blacking out and getting numbness in hands and feet. She's undergoing her 3rd (or maybe 4th -- losing track) holter monitor test today to check progress. I read that when diagnosed in infancy, they don't have to take meds all their lives. How about a teenager?
