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

Can congenital heart disease and impending heart attacks cause excessive sweating, esp. On the forehead?

Can congenital heart disease and impending heart attacks cause excessive sweating, esp. On the forehead?

Adrenaline: Anytime the heart is not functioning normally, the body can react by having excessive responses from the nervous and endocrine systems.

Excessive sweating for no apparent reason can be a red flag to warn about a heart attack even before any chest pain. ...Read more

Is pain in the carotid artery a sign of heart failure with frequent PVC's, faintness, fast heart rate and bloating?

Is pain in the carotid artery a sign of heart failure with frequent PVC's, faintness,  fast heart rate and bloating?

Carotid artery: disease in itself has no symptoms; it causes symptoms when blood flow to the brain is decreased because of it. Perhaps you are having neck pain, near the location of the carotid artery, but I would not interpret that as a sign of heart failure or cause of PVC's. Certainly frequent PVC's might be a sign of more serious dysrhythmia causing faintness/fast heart rate. You need to continue cardiac care ...Read more

Does PVCs and leaky valve cause dizziness, gurgling feeling and sporadic heart rate?

Does PVCs and leaky valve cause dizziness, gurgling feeling and sporadic heart rate?

Possibly: A "leaky" heart valve can cause the symptoms you describe. It depends which heart valve and just how leaky it is. PVCs are extra heart beats that make your heart feel like it's irregular, but they don't cause dizziness or a gurgling feeling. PVCs can cause a sensation of fluttering or palpitations in the chest. An echocardiogram is the best test to look at leaky valves. Good luck! ...Read more
