Is it possible to take only Plavix (clopidogrel) and not Aspirin after coronary stenting? I have erosive gastritis and DES in LAD after heart a, need 3 more stents.

Anti platelet Rx: We use dual antiplatelet therapy for at least 6 months to minimize stents occluding after placement. Usually either aspirin or plavix (clopidogrel) is continued later if no contraindication to that. The erosive gastritis is a significant problem and the appropriate step (s) in this case need to be considered with risks and benefits to the treatments by those with the most information about the patient. ...Read more

Tiny vsd. Cardiac workup shows possible past heart attack. Having heart cath 4 constant chest pressure/shortness of breath. Possible discomfort causes?

Chest pain not from: Chest pain possibly from ASHD or blocked coronary arteries. What showed possible old heart attack if this was an ekg this is not that accurate. If it was and echocardiogram or cardiac sonogram that showed prior heart muscle damage that is probable accurate. Cardiac cath should tell you if you have blocked arteries and how significant they are. If borderline blockages are found a wire can be passed. ...Read more

It may be as simple as a medication adjustment.

Difference in shortness of breath with heart valve disease and coronary heart disease?

Difference in shortness of breath with heart valve disease and coronary heart disease?

Cause: The symptoms will feel the same but the cause could be quite different. When the heart is not getting enough blood, it relaxes poorly after each heart beat. This can cause shortness of breath. In advanced stages, blocked heart arteries cause heart damage, pumping dysfunction, and heart failure. Valve disease can cause relaxation problems and heart damage as well despite normal circulation. ...Read more

Coronary artery calcification...I take adalat (nifedipine) blood pressure ok but heart rate high 110 at rest. Feel heaveness on chest and shortness of breath. Help?

Need examination: That is an abnormal resting heart rate and for someone your age & history of coronary artery calcification as you state- if this is entirely new for you in terms of symptoms then, your next move should be an ER facility. You are welcome to write to me with other questions if you'd like at: www. Healthtap. Com/drsaghafi but I don't think that should delay getting seen now. ...Read more

Is it Normal for a 23 year old female to have a heart rate of 149 bpm and breathlessness along with chest pains?

No: Absolutely not. That's a very fast heart rate. Without knowing more details, I would worry about pulmonary embolism, a pneumothorax, a new heart issue, or a lung problem like asthma. You should seek care right away. ...Read more

My BP is 90/120. 21 years old. Feels breathless after smoking. Heart BPM goes more than 85 but less than 105 sometimes. Breathlessness not evrytme?

My BP is 90/120. 21 years old. Feels breathless after smoking. Heart BPM goes more than 85 but less than 105 sometimes. Breathlessness not evrytme?

Several ideas: First, that is not a correct blood pressure. The first number needs to be higher than the second. If your second number is the 90, you have some blood pressure concerns. Second, think of what your body is telling you at even your young age - breathless after smoking. Not too late to give it up and let your lungs heal! ...Read more

I have sudden increase in heart rate around 110 or greater, breathlessness, slight pain in my chest, feel drowsy and weak. What could be the cause?

I have sudden increase in heart rate around 110 or greater, breathlessness, slight pain in my chest, feel drowsy and weak. What could be the cause?

Please get EKG: If your symptoms are very sudden in starting and sudden in stopping, this may be a sign of an abnormal heart rhythm (arrhythmia). You need to see a heart specialist who can order a monitor for you to wear at home during these episodes. That monitor can help identify the problem. If not from your heart then this could be from intense anxiety or panic. ...Read more

Several flip flop feelings in the heart for past few days. History of anxiety. Bp 138/77, hr normal. No pain or breathlessness. Is it anxiety or other?

Several flip flop feelings in the heart for past few days. History of anxiety. Bp 138/77, hr normal. No pain or breathlessness. Is it anxiety or other?

Need data: Without data (like a heart monitor or an event monitor), it is impossible to determine whether or not the "flip flop" is serious. We all get extra, skipped beats. An event monitor would help determine if it is a serious problem. Inhalers like albuterol can also cause extra beats. ...Read more
