I have been experiencing some rather alarming sx lately. I have had an increase in weight gain, increase in shortness of breath and a decrease in my excerise tolerance. I do have a pacemaker (just put in 4 months ago) and have cardiac disease. My cardiologist however does not feel that I need a diuretic and cannot explain what is going on. The only testing we have done recently is an event monitor which could not capture my symptoms. I have also noticed that my oxygen level drops with any activity (as low as 85) - but not consistently. All my weight is in my abdomen. I did have a thyroid test which came back normal, so that was not it. I just want to feel better! If anyone has any ideas of where to point me to, I would appreciate it!! I am a very active person who usually works outs 5 days a week, but find that I cannot maintain even 10 min of excersize anymore. Help me please!!!!!!
