I have known heart condition, including left ventricle issues, mitral valve etc., so I'm not completely ignorant of what's going on.
However, I get occasional attacks of pulmonary odema - always at night, ie lying down, aka dypsnea.
What I cannot for the life of me understand is why does this only happen periodically? It is not every night. Far from it. I can go weeks without an attack. But I have had a hard time of these last two nights, and it's getting me down.
I'm due to see my doc today, as it happens, and will ask him, but I would like to steal a march and gen up first.
I got the impression that this odema was every night. Is it perhaps being triggered by something?
