I am sorry that you have had to struggle with CHF for 8 years. I'm close to 70 and have had the unpleasant struggle with CHF for over 25 years.
What kind of blood pressure readings do you typically get during the day?
What is your Ejection Fraction?
What were the measurements and evaluations from your latest Echocardiogram Summary Report?
Congratulations! That is good news! It means that there is no associative organ or gland damage. Did you have your CRP or your High Sensitivity NT Pro BNP tested? If so, what were the results?
Recently received an ICD about a year ago. |
I am extremely tired and can sleep until mid afternoon. Still tired thoroughout the rest of the day.
I get out of breath if i get up too fast, bend over, reach or get out of a car.
The unit is working as it should , But at night I need the fan on for the circulation of air. Have use two pillows as well.
Can you explain the tiredness please.
Tiredness and breathing problems are typical of CHF and can be worsened by the medication. Did your tiredness and breathing problems only start last year, after you had the ICD surgery?
