Congestive Heart Failure

Last updated: September 2022

About 7 years ago I went to Parkland Hospital. My legs and feet were swollen, and I had bed bug bites on my body so they decided to keep me. They put me with heart patients, and that's when they diagnosed me with congestive heart failure.

After that they still did not give me any medication, so now next week I'm seeing my heart doctor. I got an appointment with her because I've been having chest pains, am short of breath, and have had terrible headaches. In addition, my knee has arthritis in it and so does my back! I also HV Sarcoidosis and COPD!
