Question HEART PROBLEMS??

Also, my mom had a heart attack back in '89 and
her cardiologist saw some calcium deposits on her valve
which he is watching.
I was reading in the LUPUS book about this and it seems
that this can be Lupus related too.
Dana if you know anything about this please comment
Later.......

Hi Deb!

Oh you bet the heart can be involved with Lupus! The heart muscle itself can become inflamed, or even fluid can build up around the heart. This is called Pericarditis and can be very dangerous. Prednisone helps get rid of this problem quite nicely. Is your mom having symptoms of this now? Aren't these new boards amazing!! I love that we can private message each other now.. isnt that neat. Talk to you later!

Post Angelic

well, My mom had a heart attack back in ;89 then all lupus symptoms
started up,recently her cardiologist detected some calcium on her valve
that he is monitoring. I think this is all related to lupus.
