About Me: Female, 63, Meriden, CT, member since Feb 2008
I have very small nodules in both my lungs. Aso scattered emphazema (told mild) and last year after chest infection shows some lung scarrring.
Been having CT scans on lu
[More]ngs for 2 years. July of 2007 I was inpatient in the hospital after calling an ambulance because I felt my heart was going to fast; vision problems; extreem fatigue ; headache and chest discomfort and arm and neck pain. During my stay in the hospital I had a pace maker inserted (2 leads) for SSS.
I am still experiencing arm; neck and chest pain. Cronic fatigue. example I live on second floor and walking stairs tire me and give me the pain I explained above. My quality of life has been declining these past couple years and doing less and less. Had a stress test and heart doctor said angina but says this is due to lungs because during stress test saturated oxygen went from 97 to 88. I am on oxygen for a year now.
My lung specialist believes this is a heart issue and heart specialist believes it a lung issue.
