Eyes :: Pressure Due To Coarctation Of Aorta?

Sep 14, 2014

Has anyone ever had coarctation of the aorta (where the heart squeezes and one feels pressure in arms)? i got this feeling last sunday and a little later felt slight pressure in my left eye. Has anyone has eye pressure due to anxiety/stress? if yes, what have the implications been? i am concerned.

Stent For Coarctation Of Aorta

I was diagnosed very late with this condition. An acute GP noticed the murmur and was not convinced that all was normal. Test after test later it was confirmed. Months later i had a stent fitted which is 4cm x 2cm, I was not warned about the amount of bruising or the pain in the legs, 4 months later i am still having pain in the groin and the che chest. The cardiologist does not know why I have this pain that travels from my chest to my back and left arm. MY left leg feels heavy and numb down to the foot which is freezing cold at times again. I have started feeling tired and fed up with the whole ordeal. Yes i know i needed this procedure but through choice i would never have had it - my active happy go lucky lifestyle now revolves around this. When i get ill My poor GP has to send me into the hospital as they are not well versed with this condition. Can anyone tell me when will I feel well and strong again. Do you get back to normal? The hospital and the doctors have been wonderful but they just do not have the answers. They think it could be damage due to the surgery but not life threatening so at least that is something to be cheerful about. I would love to hear from other people that have undergone similar treatment.

Today after about a week...i still have that feeling. What could it be...is it just due to hypertension?

Eyes :: Geometric Shape Patterns Appearing In Both Eyes

Small but geometric -ish shape. This changes in 1/2 hour or more, the shape gets larger forming a getting larger approximate 'C' shape to the left of center. It is almost like me seeing a crude kaleidoscope . Eventually the thing disappears to the left. The shape seems to be of small triangles squares, anything 'sort of' geometric. I can see past it but still have to see the shape. Whichever eye I close I can still see it; close both I can see it!   It has now cleared completely as  I have not being looking at the sun or any strong light. Is it 'just one of those things' to be tolerated every now and then. I am 75 and in general good health

Eyes :: Floaters PVD - Peripheral Vascular Disease Both Eyes

I'm late 5s,have had floaters since my 20s,back then they were small black or clear dots,fast forward,late fifties,now i've had pvds in both eyes,vitreous gel shrinks and pulls away from the back of the eye,now i have these clear to gauzy larger floaters,plus one large clumpy black one and I can't ignore them anymore. PVD is age related. I am just lucky enough to have these awful larger ones that can blur and obstruct vision. How does a person deal with it. Oh yes I also am starting to have dry eyes. Both also can cause hazy vision. Unless you've experienced it,no one else can relate

General :: Aorta Pulsating With No Aneurysm

For years I have been suffering with a pulsating stomach and ibs. That's what the doctor said it was, being that the scan I had done showed up nothing so the doctor put it down irritable bowel syndrome.

In May this year I went for an endoscopy and colonoscopy. A couple of biopsies were taken.

The results were normal, apart from a hiatus hernia and anaemia, the anaemia they put down to the fact that some time ago I was taking anti-inflammatory tablets for arthritis. On a course of iron tablets for the past three months.

Last Thursday I went for my blood test result, and I mentioned about the pulsating in my stomach. She told me t lie down on the bed while she felt my stomach. She told me that it was the aorta pulsating.

My stomach drives me nuts especially in the evening when I am Sat down.I don't know if the pulsating is due to the ibs or the hernia or both.

Diagnosed With Thoracic Aorta Aneurysm

My younger sister aged 50 was diagnosed with TAA of 5.1 cm in January and operated in February due to her small frame. She is recovering well which is encouraging. I have been meaning to go and have a check myself but kept putting it off. I went to my GP 2 weeks ago and he immediately picked up a murmur. Echo followed by a CT scan confirmed I also have an aneurysm but mine is still at 4.27 and I am 55 years old. Clearly we have a genetic disposition but mine is growing more slowly (so far) . I am in shock and still cannot get my head round it. I am fit, practise yoga, follow mainly  a vegetarian diet, don't smoke, hardly drink and do not have high blood pressure. I am now now in 'watchful waiting' and will have another CT scan in 6 months time.  I have been advised to take Beta Blockers and was wondering how patients react to them. I have a professional job in sales and need to keep my energy up. I have off course been considering giving up work but sitting at home waiting for my aneurysm to grow will not help me. I would also like to know if aneurysms always grow and if I need to accept that mine will be bigger by the time I have my next CT?

Heart :: Plaque Found On Aorta

So I am a 34yo male and I was having palpitations and asked the dr to do a work up so he did an echo and a sonogram of my aorta to check for aneurysm. The echo came back good no issues and there was no aneurysm or evidence of one my measurements were all good. However the report said that plaque was found in all the areas of my aorta ascending descending and mid and in my right and left iliac arteries. The doctor said this was unusual and abnormal for my age. I haven't got to actually talk to him it wrote it on the report that I got. I don't have a follow up for about 1 month and I'm curious what the outlook is on this. I smoked for a couple years when I was 18 and completely quit. I have always been somewhat active(not sedentary) the last 3-4 years I have been lifting weights and running I weigh 220 and I'm 6-3 somewhat built. I look and feel healthy? I'm kinda thinking that I can't live a long life anymore?

Aortic Aneurysm :: Enlarged Aorta

My 21 year old brother was at the heart doctor today, they told him he had an enlarged aorta. When he was 5 he had open heart surgery for a hole in his heart. Today was supposed to be just a regular check up for his old condition but they found the enlarged aorta. I'm sorry that I don't know much information about his original condition or much of anything else but I get everything passed on from my mother and she's pretty upset with the news. Apparently the doctor is not very worried about this and says that he needs to come back in a year for a follow up. This to me does not seem right....seems they need to maybe look into this further instead of sending him on his way. Any outlook on this? He has always been an athlete and is an high jumper for Washington State University (went to Pac 12 this year) so he is in really great health. I would really like to console my mother and give her some good (better) news.

Eyes :: Squint And Itchy Eyes

I have this squint since childhood. My eyes move outward. It happens a lot when I'm tired or try to look quickly at something, It was diagnosed early and I was asked to do a regular exercise with pencil. I had to Keep pencil in front of my nose and look at it and then slowly move the pencil forward and repeat it several times. The later I was given glasses and it improved it a little but then again it got as it was earlier. My vision is 6 by 6. But its just I don't have proper control over the muscles. They seem to be aligned but when I'm tired or move eyes they go outward. I wanted to know how it can be permanently corrected. It just disturbs me and I always feel a stress on my eyes. I have this irritation over eyes too and itching which makes it even worse. How it can be treated or it can be operated? I guess it would be easier with operation and I would go for it but I was asked to do exercise and told that it will stay but will get better, It was 30 degrees.

Respiratory Disorders :: Bilateral Atelectasis, Narrowing Aorta

I have been having abdominal and pelvic pain for months since my daughter was born in May. I went to the er at 2 different hospitals and both did a CT scan and 1 found bilateral lower lobe atelectasis and the other a narrowing of my aorta valve of the celiac. I asked my family physician about the atelectasis but he said it was air pockets but nothing to worry about. I had a collapsed lung 3 years ago so are these things I should be concerned about because he is not.

62 And Ascending Aorta - 4.2 Aneurysm - Strange Pain In Chest

I am 62 and I have been diagnosed with a 4.2 aneurysm in the ascending aorta. It was found while in the hospital for a suspected heart attack. I do know that aneurysms run in my father's side....one brother died of a ruptured abdominal aneurysm, one died with a brain aneurysm, grandfather died of a ruptured ascending aneurysm and my dad had the same. Of course, they won't do surgery till it reaches 5, but the stress of this is hard on me and my husband. We do know that I did not have the aneurysm two years ago, because I had all the tests done because of my heart rate rate drops into the thirties at times. I do have this sensation in my chest that I had mentioned to my doctor several months ago and I am now wondering if it is related to the growth of this thing. Periodically, I get this stretching sensation in the upper part of my chest...doesn't hurt, but it makes me feel like something is pulling. It lasts a few minutes and then stops...it does this a few times a day. I was just wondering if it was possible to feel the aneurysm growing?
