I just got home from the hospital and the doctors can not agree if I had congestive heart failure or just my copd and asthma attack. I had 12 liters of fluid taking out of me in 2 days. I couldn't barely breath, I was soo swollen and up to this point I was fatigued,can;'t sleep,use a c-pap still wasn;t doing it for me toward the time I went in to Hospital I only could sit straight up to rest. One doc said it was asthma causing this fluid retention and inflammed lung lining and body others said Heart.
EKG was fine. Blood work didn't show heart attack or lower whatever the doc in ER said.
This is the second time in 2 yrs this happened. Also, years back I was diagnoised with POTS. Postural Orthostatic Tychardia Syndrome. And I recent went from taking paxil 25cr mg to zoloft 50mg. THIS is when the breathing problem began,it started off with having a hard time breathing when laying down...not too bad..then grew over time in 2-3 weeks to the hospital visit. Any ideas!!HELP!
