My Life
My Heart

Heart disease encompasses a wide range of cardiovascular problems. Several diseases and conditions fall under the umbrella of heart disease. My heart disease includes Arrhythmias, Right Ventricular Cardiomyopathy & Congestive Heart Failure.

Arrhythmias

Arrhythmias are abnormal heart rhythms. The symptoms you experience may depend on the type of arrhythmia you have — heartbeats that are too fast or too slow. Symptoms of an arrhythmia include:

  • lightheadedness
  • fluttering heart or racing heartbeat
  • slow pulse
  • fainting spells
  • dizziness
  • chest pain

Cardiomyopathy

Cardiomyopathy is a disease that causes the muscles of the heart to grow larger and turn rigid, thick, or weak. Symptoms of this condition include:

  • fatigue
  • bloating
  • swollen legs, especially ankles and feet
  • shortness of breath
  • pounding or rapid pulse

Congestive Heart Failure

Congestive heart failure (CHF) is a chronic progressive condition that affects the pumping power of your heart muscles, specifically refers to the stage in which fluid builds up around the heart and causes it to pump inefficiently.

You have four heart chambers. The upper half of your heart has two atria, and the lower half of your heart has two ventricles. The ventricles pump blood to your body’s organs and tissues, and the atria receive blood from your body as it circulates back from the rest of your body.

CHF develops when your ventricles can’t pump enough blood volume to the body. Eventually, blood and other fluids can back up inside your lungs

  • abdomen
  • liver
  • lower body

My Treatment

I have an An IMPLANTED CARDIOVERTER DEFIBRILLATOR (ICD) – a pager-sized device — placed in my chest to reduce my risk of dying if the lower chambers of my heart (ventricles) go into a dangerous rhythm and stop beating effectively (cardiac arrest).

It detect and stop abnormal heartbeats (arrhythmias). The device continuously monitors my heartbeat and delivers electrical pulses to restore a normal heart rhythm when necessary.

You’ve likely seen TV shows in which hospital workers “shock” an unconscious person out of cardiac arrest with electrified paddles. An ICD does the same thing only internally and automatically when it detects an abnormal heart rhythm.

Taking my medicine as prescribed is also important for controlling my condition for overall long-term health and wellness.

I manage my heart disease by making healthy lifestyle choices like eating a healthy diet, getting regular exercise and living stress free!

Doctors won’t make you healthy…

Teachers won’t make you smart…

Gurus won’t make you calm…

Mentors won’t make you rich…

Trainers won’t make you fit…

Ultimately, you have to take responsibility.
