possible blocked heart arteries

Posted , 3 users are following.

Back in 2007 I had my Aortic valve replaced. The procedure went very well and I've had a perfectly normal lifestyle since.

I haven't been to the Cardioligist for a year and lately have started having burning, twitching aching , twitching feet and hands, guiding me to believe this is some sort of circulation problems. I am scheduled to see my Cardioligist in early March, but was wandering if the Aeurothepy problem could be a possible blockage in my heart from arteries. I have had no symptoms of anything going on with my heart, but since I had the valve replacement, it never hurts to ask. Thank you!!

     I had my valve replaced nearly four years ago.

    It sounds rather like neuropathy. I don't have your symptoms but have numbness in my left foot that is put down to some kind of neuropathy but as I have lower back pain it may be coming from there.

      Thank you for the info. My pain started with tingling, burning, stabbing pains and muscle twitching in my arms and hands and fingers as well as my feet, toes and legs up to the knees.

    I'm thinking you meant Neuropathy/neuritis... may not have anything to do with your valves directly,but if it becomes defective again and causes you poor circulation to your extremities then that would cause problems....but neuropathy tends to be due to the damaging of your nerves that cause numbness,tingling,pins and needles ,pain etc.....your doctor should be able to figure it out.....good luck to you...
