Any suggestions or ideas?
Lately I've had some good days and some bad days. What remains the common denominator is my legs AND when I lie down quickly on my back. Let me explain. Imagine taking an antibacterial wipe, putting it on the floor, and using your feet to scrub the kitchen floor with it. Every time I do the exact same thing I feel horrible after for over an hour. My chest feels like its not getting enough oxygen. I can't explain it. I breathe fine but its just not enough. Today I did the same in the shower, I used my feet to scrub it and during the shower I became weak, felt my heart pounding mixed with some tachy etc. It was awful. I recently had a lower extremity unltrasound from the groin to my ankle and it was normal.
The other problem is when I lay into my bed. If I go knee first on to the bed, then twist my body and lay down on my back I feel this shift in my chest/heart. It becomes hard to breathe for a few seconds and then it goes away. The only way I can explain it is if you think of one of those hour glass sand timers and you turn it over. That's the only way I can explain what I feel. The last issue is at night when I'm asleep. When I lay on my right side and occassionally on my back, my chest feels clogged and sort of like I'm drowning internally. Then when I change to my back or sit up, it goes away.
With that said I've had a recent echo, good EF (55-60), no fluid in lungs or any other issues. My recent stress test was normal, my zio patch was normal, done lots of blood work and NOTHING shows up. They say I'm fine but I know I am not. Has anyone seen anything like this? It's always when I use my legs or when I lay on my back quickly. Even sometimes when I try to chase my dog or do something rapidly it feels like the output isn't there. However I do not have Chronotropic incompetence. This has become so frustrating I can't even explain how I feel about all of this. Anyhow if anyone has suggestions or ideas, I'm all ears! Thank you very much!
