Severe Aortic Stenosis and Ascending Aorta Aneurysm
I have a severe aortic stenosis with a valve opening of .77cm and an ascending aortic aneurysm measuring 4.2cm with a normal root measurement of 2cm. I have become very symptomatic over the last month to the point of sleeping upright in a recliner and just Thursday fainted after having a ct scan. I was on Lasix but potassium levels were found to be normal. Curious as to any thoughts.
I am a 57 years old female with a lot of health problems. I have noticed that with ANY excertion my temp. goes up. I normally run under 98.6 to 97.1, however, after excertion my temp. goes up rather quickly, from 98.8 - 99.7. Is this something with my heart? I don't need to work to make it go up. Our mail box is approm. 30 feet from the house. Yesterday I took my temperature, before I went to get the mail. Well it was 97.7,after I came in and took my temp. again and it was 99.8. I also have Asthma, COPD, Fibromyglia, arthrities, GERD. Any ideas?
