I posted 6 months ago regarding breathing issues and chronic fatigue. God bless the doctors, however they are not perfect.
They all mean well I'm sure. We as the patient need to be aggressive and not "settle" for treatment that does not help and allow the physicians to say.... "we tried..." Move on until you find help. This life is NOT a dress hearsal..... we only get one shot!
After 3+ years of taking acid reflux meds and being told that my heart is fine, the pain is from acid reflux, I had an endoscopy and balloon to open up my inflammed esophogas. It helped with breathing, but 5 months later esophagus still sore.... on Dexilant
which seems to be only med that works for me. Last week was given cardiac catherization and found that my left ventricle had 80% blockage and stent was inserted. Sooooo for 3 + years I put up with the chest pain (was told to) and all along the blockage was the issue. BTW..... my BP has slowly getting lower and lower and the past several months averages 60's, 70's/ 30. Was a couch potato
and now on Midodrine 5g 3 times a day just to stay off the couch.
All of this to say.... keep on keeping on and don't let anyone stop you from achieving the life you deserve! Good luck to everyone who has been kind enough to post on this blog.
My fight continues along with all of you!
