Avatar n tn I was tested for heart problems while in the hospital, 1 year later, and then again 5 years later. Thankfully,no heart problems were found in any of those tests. I am currently experiencing problems that seem to be repetitive strain injuries in my arms and hands and will be seeing a specialist soon. I remember having the pain from arthritis in my fingers when I was in the hospital with Kawasaki. Is it possible this could end up being a precursor for arthritis in Kawasaki patients later on?
Avatar n tn I am now 28 years old and have been wondering if there are any studies showing the incidence of long term effects of the disease (and not just heart complications).

Avatar n tn Travolta's son's story is exactly what made me start thinking there might be a connection, and then I ran across the post from a 27 year old on this site asking about a possible connection between Kawasaki and seizures later in life. I will post an entry on the heart forum to see if I get a response from one of the doctors, and I plan to share this info with my daughter so she can follow up with her neurologist and possibly a cardiologist too. Thanks to both of you for your responses.

Avatar n tn My heart and chest are kind of goofy and my heart is a bit out of place and I have some vascular problems too, near the heart. Most pacemaker patients never have trouble, but I guess for some reason.....I do! It is hard to understand why at times, but I know that sooner or later it will be ok. I thank God that I have my pacemaker, even with all the crazy things that have gone wrong. It sure beats passing out and having sinus arrest!!

Avatar f tn He had Kawasaki Disease when he was 8 years old, and he has been checked for heart damage, but nothing definitive has been found recently or in the past. His symptoms now are: irregular heartbeat and abnormal EKG. He lives in Tokyo, Japan and he did see a doctor there that specializes in the treatment of Kawaski disease, but he has had no answers for his problems. He will be in the US in Dec., March and June, and could see a specialist in the US. What type of specialist should he see?
Avatar n tn He says his heart races, thats normal for him. And his heart always beats fast. He said he has an enlarged heart. Please tell me the association between this and the disease. Do you think in your opinion this incident is assoc. with the disease. Please advise, I'm scared for him. He was supposed to go to a heart specialist 5 months ago but missed his appointment.

Avatar f tn However, a small percentage of children develop long term complications, such as vasculitis, myocarditis, heart valve problems, and heart rhythm problems (arrhythmia). I don't know if you are in the latter category or not. 2. Your recent viral and bacterial infections may have caused and/or contributed to the myocarditis. It is important for you to follow up with your primary care provider and cardiologist, especially right after your hospitalization.
Avatar n tn Does your family have a history of heart problems? Anything to do with the heart see a doctor. Things can change. If nothing shows up there. Maybe it is structural. Ask to the doctor to check these things though they can can cause pain in the chest. Good luck!
Avatar n tn I had Kawasaki Disease as a child. I am now 34 years old and had been experiencing heart flutters and rapid heartbeat, I was attributing this to stress. My question is should I see a cardiolgist to make sure this is not related to the kawasaki? I am not sure what treatment I received when I was diagnosed. At the time I was only the second person in my state to be diagnosed with the disease. Thanks!

1542193 tn?1293194607 Some electrical problems with the heart can run in families such as Long Q-T Syndrome, Wolffe-Parkinson-White. Muscle diseases of the heart, known as Cardiomyopathies, can also be genetic, all of these problems tend to run in the immediate family members. Labs for Kawasaki tend to have high white blood counts with a low red blood count (anemia) and if the child has blood work done later on than the platelet counts are high.
Avatar m tn my 13 moths old daughter was diagonised with 3mm hole heart in heart after taking her for an echo test.she recently had kawasaki disease.since they didnt tell us about the hole at birth could the kawasaki cause this hole?

Avatar f tn s disease at age 3 and was treated with IV gamma globulin. She followed up with a cardiologist until age 14 and had no apparent problems, and no evidence of aneurysm. She has recently experienced arrhythmias (particularly ones brought on by exertion) and a holter monitor analysis shows that she has PVC. She is now 22. Although she will follow up with a cardiologist, many doctors of adults have never seen a case of Kawasakis and do not keep up with recent research. Her doctor is now retired.
