Avatar n tn He came home and now is back in the hopital with breathing problems and they say now he has been transfered to a hospital dealing with heart related problems. Now they say his virus might have gone to his heart. I sure there are plenty of things this could be, but could you enlighten me some. Thanks!

Avatar n tn I know of a 14 year-old who died this summer due to a heart virus. I was told the virus resulted in brain swelling which was the ultimate cause of death. I have not been able to find information on this on the web. You insight is appreciated.

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 recently I have been having these funny little episodes with my heart I get breathless then my heart does these half beats where it feels like its trying to stop then goes back to normal heart rate the doctor did say to me that it was eptopic beat but didnt explain anything to me. which as it does stresses you out even more. I feel like I am going to faint when these episodes happen. I dont drink do drugs I eat really healthy and I do smoke cigarettes which am trying to give up.
Avatar f tn I had this problem since my dad passed away, its getting worst, the older i get.
Avatar n tn wow, that doc is brilliant--situational depression! no kidding, it's natural to be worried about your heart, especially with complex cases. i'm sorry to hear about your problems--it's a tough situation i'm sure. i have 3 vessel CAD & a stent, and some underlying electrical issues that we are still sorting out. i've developed some problems with my valves. my heart beat has become increasingly painful, a stab or tearing pain with each beat.
Avatar n tn Is there a kind of disease that caused by virus or bacteria affects on blood, which can lead to heart problems?
1527510 tn?1392301344 How lovely does my eye look?! Jealous?! I woke this morning and it was VERY blood shot and extremely painful. It took me about 30 minutes to be able to open this morning because of the pain. All day the pain was getting worse so on my morning break I went to the pharmacist to see what they thought (I work in a pharmacy). They said it didn't look good and to go adn see the optician. Luckily for me the optician had just had a cancellation and saw me right there and then.
Avatar f tn He said I had a virus in the summer. If I get rid of stomach problems I will get rid of heart problems. Take 20 mg. in the morning and 20 mg. late afternoon. He will see me in a month and follow up with Dr. Xanthaky.
Avatar n tn The University of Toronto did a study with mice and discovered a gene (p56lck) caused a virus infection to make the t-cells eat heart muscle. The result is the same as if the patient had had a severe heart attack. I had such an illness and now am on a medical program just like the heart attack victims. My cardiologist told me that some patients have only mild heart problems, but he had heard of a few who that did not make it to the ER soon enough and died.

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.
448723 tn?1301454958 Yesterday I spent half the day at the doctors. 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.
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.
Avatar n tn Recently I went into the doctor and they thought I had a heart murmur. I had felt more tired in the last 6 months so I thought maybe this was the cause. A few weeks later I was given a chemical stress test and I was told that 1/4 of my heart wasn't beating due to a heart virus. I'm unsure as to what types of virus this might have been. I had perfect cholesterol and low blood pressure. I was prescribed a very low does of Coreg by my doctor.
Avatar f tn A closed friend of mine had what the called virus of the heart, he lost control of his legs spent 1 month in the hospital and two in rehab, doctors have not explained what this exactly is. Also is the a way to heal the hesrt?
Avatar n tn A work colleague was yesterday diagnosed as having a heart virus, and has been told he can carrying on working on light duties. In view of my history, could this virus affect me.

Avatar n tn Myocarditis is inflammation of the heart muscle can be caused by a variety of infections and conditions and the most common cause is infection of the heart muscle by a virus. The virus invades the heart muscle to cause local inflammation. After the initial infection subsides, the body's immune system continues to inflict inflammatory damage to the heart muscle. This immune response actually prolongs the myocarditis.
Avatar f tn 10 years ago my mother was diagnosed with a heart virus. She has done pretty well except for the fact it caused conjestive heart failure. last februray her heart defibulator started firing alot because of racing heart. At the same time her platelets dropped dramatically to 1700,white cells are up and her stool turned cream colored. She has had a bone marrow biopsy which was negative for cancer. We still dont have any answers.
Avatar f tn A virus that goes to the heart can do a lot of damage to the heart and can be fatal. If doctors find a virus inside the heart, they will not operate. Her heart working at only 5% sounds unreal as does not being in the hospital. Heart strengthening medication could be like Lanoxin to make the hearts pump harder and get a better fill. If she has cardiomyopathy now from the heart virus it could mean that she will need a heart transplant in the future.
