Causes Of Mild Cardiomegaly
Reflux can hurt lung: I am not exactly sure what you mean by long edema but stomach juice that comes up and gets into the throat and spills into the lungs can cause significant damage.

Stomach upset: The suffix "itis" means "inflammation". The prefix "gastro" means "stomach." the term "gastritis" thus means an "inflammed stomach." the term is often used imprecisely to mean stomach upset, which can derive from both acid & non-acid causes, slow emptying of the stomach, H.pylori infection, atrophic & hypersecretory problems. Try acid blockers & diet modification, recommended by your doctor. ...Read more
Your cardiologist ca: Since this is a heart related matter, your family doctor should guide you and arrange a consultation with a cardiologist.

From echo?: Assuming you are talking about an echocardiogram reading, this represents damaged or malfunctioning cardiac tissue. This could be from previous heart attack or current poor blood flow. Cure - full cardiac evaluation for current symptoms, treatability and risk factor assessment to prevent further damage. Exercise is the best cure after getting evaluated. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What are the signs and symptoms of left sided heart failure due associated with pulmonary congestion?
Congestion: Breathlessness, especially with exertion. Easy fatigability. Impaired exercise capacity. These are early signs. Without treatment, one becomes short of breath resting, especially when lying down (orthopnea) and at night (paroxysmal nocturnal dyspnea). Eventually the right heart also fails leading to swelling (edema), abdominal fluid (ascites and effusions), and cachexia (wasting). ...Read more

Yes: In theory "mild chf" as a syndrome is virtually always reversible. The more important question is what is the trigger for the heart failure, i.e. Is it high bp, is it muscle injury from an old heart attack, is it poor kidney function etc. The exact cause of the heart failure is the most important bit of information to know. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

CXR's show mild cardiamegaly 4 many yrs. Could it with Type II DM & Asthma cause Mod.Aortic Stenosis &? Mild hypokensis of Apex. This DX A.S/HA new
Possibly.: It would make more sense for the cardiomegaly to result from aortic stenosis because the heart would build up muscle of the left ventricle pumping against the stenosis to get blood to the rest of the body, but they may be unrelated. Hypokinesis may represent ischemia or lack of adequate oxygen to your inferior heart. Diabetes certainly plays a role in heart disease especially atherosclerosis. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Mild cerebral and cerebellar atropy, mild ventriculomegaly and mild periventricular ischaemic white matter pallor at the age of 55?
What are the signs and symptoms of left sided heart failure associated with pulmonary congestion?
Coronary narrowing: Ischemia (which is found on a stress test) connotes heart muscle not getting enough blood flow to meet its needs. Mild ischemia implies that the defect showing up on stress test is more subtle, i.e. That there is slightly less blood flow to the area during stress than at rest. It usually means the severity of underling narrowing is less, though by definition it is still enough to limit flow. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Pressure pain in left side of chest moderate cause? No shortness of breath nor dizziness
history of tachycardia 106 and up
Leakage: The aortic valve, when closed, prevents blood from rushing back into the left ventricle from which it has just been expelled by contraction of that chamber during systole. When there is some form of abnormality to the valve there may be leakage back into the left ventricle during diastole. Therefore, the blood is regurgitating back. ...Read more
