  1. shortness of breath

    1. Thanks for sharing! Good one we've all experienced this symptom and it's hard to deal with at all times. Sometimes even just getting out of the bed is hard to do without having shortness of breath. -Olivia

  2. I actually have 2. When my feet swell and just tired.

    1. Thank you. I will defiantly send updates. @

    2. Glad to hear! Keep us in the loop. Wishing you the best, Lauren (team member)

  3. Extreme fatigue, weakness, and not having enough breath to tackle the slightest incline when out on a walk. I amble at a very slow pace and often use a retractable walking stick. Uneven surfaces, such as a rocky beach are beyond me.

    1. Hi John we face all the similar symptoms. Please let me know what remedies have you take to cure yourself.

    2. hi continue exercise and walking it will help you

  4. Hi Olivia, |I walk mainly down the country lanes near me, but when I visit my daughter I amble along the flat sandy beach (rocks or shingle are out of the question) with her dog. I am very slow and unsteady bug the stick helps quite a lot. I have a pacemaker but haven't been invited for a follow-up appointment by the cardiologist since it was fitted three years ago.

    1. Thank you for the update. That is nice to hear that you are able to enjoy walks on the beach, even if you are limited to where you can walk. It is nice to be able to enjoy the fresh air and keep your body active. Did your doctor talk to you about how often to get your pacemaker checked? John. community moderator.

    2. Wow sounds nice and I'm glad that you're able to go on walks with your daughter and her dog. Regarding the pacemaker, you should be getting your pacemaker checked at a minimum of twice a year. I would contact the cardiologist and set up an appointment immediately. I wish you all the best with your walks! -Olivia
