jersey,
 
I do  not but I hope someone that has this condition posts to you.
 
FYI for all members reading this, people think of heart failure as a condition where the heart does not pump out enough blood. That is called systolic heart failure. However, many CHFers have a different kind of heart failure - caused when the heart does not fully relax, so it does not fill properly with blood. This is called diastolic heart failure.
 
Gentle Hugs to you, Jersey.
