Hi! I am wondering if anyone here has experienced a feeling like warm water rushing through your chest when standing? I have Lupus, and I was recently diagnosed with mitral and tricuspid valve regurgitation. My heart has been perfectly healthy until this last year, but as these "leaks" developed, so did some very odd symptoms. One of those symptoms is this very warm feeling in my chest, right at my heart, and radiating into my breasts. It only lasts for 5-10 seconds, and it is normally when I have been still for a bit and then suddenly stand or move to an upright position. Of course, I've also been experiencing tightness, palpitations, breathing difficulties, and achiness in my chest off and on.
Every doctor I have asked about this warm feeling in my chest looks at me like I'm nuts, so I'm hoping some of you here can relate.
