Heart Problems

Yesterday I felt like maybe I was havung a heart attack or stroke. I felt alot kf numbness on my right side. But can't really tell much difference I have felt alot of numbness the last few months in the hands and feet. This time felt in tbe fsce so worried me. We had plans so I kept praying it was nothing and would pass and I wasn't going to die. I really wanted to go to the ER I was worried. On the other hand didn't want to feel stupid if it is nothing.

We usually have good intuitions about our own bodies....if something isn't feeling right and you get scared maybe it should be checked out. What if it was serious and you didn't .... Hope you feel better. God Bless

Talk to your rheumatologist. Any time you have chest, lungs or heart pain call your doctor. Praying for you.

Coming frim someone who has been hospitalized twice from lupus affecting my heart, never and i mean never just brush it off. I went to the hospital with those same pains except mine was so bad it hurt just to breathe. I was diagnosed with pericarditis. Fluid around the heart, and an inflammed heart muscle. I also had fluid around both lungs, pleural effusion is what they call it. Had to have the fluid drained from my lungs and that shit hurt!!! Second time i was admitted and transferred back to the hospital that specialized with the heart because i was having a mini heart attack. Got a blood thinner shot in the stomach and was kept in the hospital for a while. I tell u my story to say never take your symptoms as not serious. My husband is very supportive about my health condition even his job understands if he has to take off because of me. Tell your husband next time, you’ll be surprised to know that he may be worrying about u more than you know. Hope u feel better hun
