, I am a 53 yr old male, I don't smoke nor drink nor do any drugs. I have an appointment to see a family doctor later this month (they have a long wait list). But in the meantime I'm trying to research what this" could be" & if its arrhythmias, what type of doctor should I go to. A regular physician, a heart specialist, a blood specialist? Or, how urgent is this, should I go to the ER? I can not breathe deeply. I sometimes wake up at night because my body" forgets" to breathe. I am tired even after 6 to 8 hours of sleep (I don't fall asleep during the day, nor at random times). I've always gotten cold easily, even in 50 degree weather, I'm cold. I found my rt nostril always blocked. My left leg & left arm" fall asleep" after a few minutes of pressure, while my right leg & right arm do not and heavier than. I have heart/chest pain sometimes, just sitting there relaxing. These symptoms have come & gone the last few months. But they have been more consistent the past 2 days.
Hi my mother is suffering from cold and fever especially in the night it is increase temperature and bp in normal stage. Please give me some suggestion.
Heart failure occurs when the heart fails to pump blood around the body and organs for oxygen and nutrients. As blood moves through the heart and body at a slower rate, pressure in the heart increases. The chambers of the heart stretch to hold more blood to be able to pump through the body. This helps the blood to move but eventually the heart muscle walls weaken, unable to pump blood efficiently. The kidneys, in response cause the body, to retain fluids. The leakage of fluid in the tissues and the organs congests the heart, leading to heart failure.
Any of the following conditions can be responsible for weakening the heart and causing heart failure.
1. Coronary artery disease: this is a disease of the arteries supplying blood and oxygen to the heart that causes decreased blood flow to heart muscle. If the arteries get blocked or narrowed (due to the buildup of fatty deposits), the heart fails to get oxygen and nutrients, which may eventually lead to heart failure.
2. Heart attack: if the artery becomes suddenly blocked or the plaques formed by fatty deposits rupture, it can lead to a heart attack. This happens due to the formation of a blood clot which may block blood flow to an area of heart muscle.
3. High blood pressure: high blood pressure puts an extra strain on the heart for it to work harder to circulate blood throughout the body. As a result, the heart muscle may become stiff or weak to effectively pump blood.
4. Heart muscle weakness: this condition can have many causes including diseases, infections, drug and alcohol abuse. Genetic factors may also contribute to the weakening of heart muscles.
