Consistent Chest Moderate to Sever Pain and Shortness of Breath 2 years after surgery’s
New to the form. Sitting in hospital room trying to figure things out. I am having a lot of issues almost 2 years after ablation and PM installed.
I am 61 with history of Rheumatoid arthritis as well as fibromyalgia type two diabetes and AF.
in 12/2017 they did a ablation for AF and have had continuous chest pain and shortness of breath since that time they install a pacemaker in December 2018 due to slow heart rate and the pain and shortness of breath still make my life miserable.
I end up in the local hospital every 2 to 3 months since the ablation. Every time I go to the emergency room they send me to the Kansas City hospital to test for heart failure, the cardiologist after several adjustments to the pace maker ends up saying it is a issue caused by the RA or fibromyalgia and the rheumatologist keeps pointing to heart issues. I am kind of stuck in a bad cycle.
My Local doctors sent me to mail clinic to get a second opinion and Mayo Clinic diagnosed it as fibromyalgia they treated it by doing injections into the chest which yielded no positive results. I am sitting in a hospital room tonight after being in for five days I am going to be dismissed tomorrow with no answers.
Every time I do to much walking, riding bicycle or bend over I end up with extreme chest pain and shortness of breath. Has anyone experienced these symptoms. I am tired of taking pills by the handful and having a very poor quality of life. Sorry for the rant just needed to get it out.
