At this point, I'm wondering if I am risking heart attack or passing out by pushing myself to exercise a little, walk a little, have more physical activity because I am wasting away. Can anyone tell me if this is connected with cardiovascular disease do do I need to worry everytime I get short of breath? Just making a sandwich or walking to 711 and back can do it.
I also had a diagnosis of Hiatal Hernia about 7 months ago and fell on my but fracturing 3 vertebrate. I have also been using prednisone for over five years for a skin condition.
After the fall, I suffered a multitude of painful symptoms, back pains, then abdominal/g.i. track pains, and bloating all the time like a hard basketball whether I ate or not. Excruciating days and nights, move this way the back stabs, try to lie down the stomach screams.
I spent the next 7 months and all my savings with many doctors and hospitals and nothing has changed much, instead a couple of months ago the most serious symptoms arose; the shortness of breath, weakness, and fatigue.
Doctors kept giving me laxitives and saying the hernia has no affect on anything. I had a full heart testing done saying heart is fine, but second opinions showed not. I was not given a treadmill test. A heart ctscan for calcium showed lots and I was advised to get an angiogram but haven't the money for that now.
Also, the many doctors not talking to each other resulted in many different medications probably causing problems.
I have just about given up and resigned to die but thought I would try some more research in forums like these. Thank you.
