arythmia



I've been on a statin for many months and now I'm diagnosed with heart arrhythmia. I've had foot pain that doc said is plantar facsitis and arthritis. (Was given diclofenac potassium 50mg in Dec 2015 for pain but it is not helping the pain).  I had forgotten I had been diagnosed plantar facsitis over 5 yes ago but current pain is different location.

Sometimes my feet feel swollen with the foot pain when exercising.  Recently my foot felt swollen enlarged (like a cartoon) but didn't look swollen.. Also had strange feeling that eventually extended up to the knee.  Test this week didn't reveal anything like a clot or anyerism.

Heart ultrasound this week showed heart regurgitation.

I'm also having increased memory / focus brain problems.

New issues may explain my increased fatigue and the random low level chest pains I've had over last many months. And increased numbness in legs/arms and swelling that I more frequently wakeup with.

Scheduled for chemical stress test next week. I am fearful that it will cause heart attack.

I was corrected in that regurgitation is not arrhythmia.

After chemical/nuclear stress test it was recommended doing a procedure called cardio catch (angiogram) because the stress test showed "moderate blockage of the LAD artery".   Robin at office said it is possible to be false-positive.

They results of angiogram was NO blockage!  But no one ever stated the stress test turned as false-positive.  Ugh! I feel used and with today's advanced technologies, I feel misled.

Now I'm trying to recover from new (post angiogram) pangs of pain around my body, not to mention brain recovery from the fentynol used during procedure.
