Hi Mandy, welcome to the group. It sounds like you have been given very good advice and I am glad to see you are going to see a doctor about your heart. I have CHF off and on. However I suffer from COPD which is causing my CHF. The other thing is I have two doctors fighting over my diagnosis. One says Lupus and one says PBC(liver). Both are auto immune and both can effect your lungs and heart. I have an appt with a new Pulmonologist on the 6th so I'll be interested on his in take about it. Do you have trouble breathing with your CHF? My rheumy was looking at the last hospital report for me and it said I had CHF at that time and I was in a major flare at the time. I'm 50 now but I was in my 30's when all of this started with me.
I'm also sorry about your parents. My husband died when my kids were 15 and 19. I know it has been very hard for them.
Again welcome to the group I look forward to hearing what your doctor has to say.
