Does congestive heart desease cause pressure in head, dizziness and small headaches?

Cardiac congestion. Congestive heart failure (CHF) commonly can cause one of these 3 symptoms--dizziness. This is because the blood pressure is usually low, and can be made lower by the diuretics used to treat chf; it also tends to be fast. Both of these factors predispose to dizziness. The other 2 symptoms are not commonly due to chf, but are common with many of the medications used to treat chf.
Possible. But these are not the major or diagnostic symptoms for chf. Swelling, shortness of breath, poor appetite, and fatigue are more diagnostic pending x ray and echo confirmation.

Not necessarily. Your description raises concern of possible postural blood pressure drop, which could be a medication adverse reaction, but also, associated with a migrainous phenomenon. I do not see a medication to control your ms, only the steroids, which i presume are being used for a relapse. Would suggest starting a potent ms agent soon, and supplementing vitamin d. Have your doc assess all mentioned. Read more...
