I have a kidney failure. Am I more likely to have a heart attack?

Yes. According to epocrates....Ckd is a risk factor for cardiovascular disease, independent of comorbidities such as dm, htn, and dyslipidemia. Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death for these patients, and the overwhelming majority of patients with CKD will die prior to reaching the need for renal replacement therapy.
Yes. Kidney failure is a definite risk favor for heart attacks and strokes. Be sure to follow your doctors directions faithfully and it will help!
Maybe. There is a higher incidence of heart attacks and strokes in persons with kidney disease.

Not likely, but. As someone with migraines you are at an increased risk. You also have pain with deep breathing which means it could be a lung problem such as a blood clot. You can't mess around with any sort of chest pain especially with breathing problems. You shouldn't be on BCPs, but if you are you are at an even increased risk. You should be seen right away in an ED to find out what's going on. Good luck.
