HI Dogtired, I'm on Isosorbide mono. I have to take it four times a day. It sure has helped me. I wish you well. Keep us updated on how well it works for you. Take care. emoticon

So, had a great day Saturday, and a terrible day Sunday. Today is a little better than yesterday, but not much. At least I haven't wanted to stay in bed all day today. I went back to the cardiologist and he is putting me on yet another drug. Isosorbide MN. Hoping that this combination will finally show some long lasting improvement!

I am having real issues with fluid retention. Was feeling pretty good yesterday morning, and by the afternoon, I had swelled up like a balloon. Had to take an extra Lasix on top of my chlorthalidone. Anyone else having issues with fluid buildup? I go back to the cardiologist on Monday. I will be glad when he figures out what dosage I need to be on to get all of this under control. It is VERY frustrating!

Feeling a little better today. Doctor upped my BP meds, so I am sure it will be a couple of days before I see real progress, but at least I don't feel like I have the last couple of days.

Feeling lousy today! Was feeling so good this time last week, and now my BP is back up to where it was before I started new meds. Very frustrating!

Feeling odd. I didn't sleep well last night. Felt like I was crushing my chest no matter what position I took. I know it's not heart issues, my stents went in like 5 1/2 weeks ago. I'm thinking it's just fear of the possibility....

I feel really good today after going for a 45 minute walk with my husband this morning and getting my living room, kitchen, and dining room cleaned. Having a clean house always cheers me up! (Almost as much as having good food in the house!) I have been doing really good with my nutrition for the last 4 days. Tonight we are going to go to a high school basketball game. I love the pop and popcorn and listening to the band and excitement of the people. I decided to eat really healthy for breakfast and lunch. For supper I am having a diet pop and a large bag of popcorn at the game. Is that bad??? It is the first time in years I am doing that.

I have a heart condition and just got a heart monitor off. I will find out what is going on again when I meet with the doctor next week. My heart is in racing mode most of today. As long as I feel good I guess I don't need to worry about it.

Blessings to each one of you!! emoticon

Great-- setting goal to make me healthy one step at a time. My two goals for now are to drink 8 glass of water each day and to eat a rainbow. Both will help me feel better. Do you have a goal to work toward for the week? If so let us know your goals might help us when setting a new one.

I started goin to the gym 2 & half months ago for "physical therapy" because my arms were so weak.. At first the exercises was makin me stronger, until they started me lifting weights, and my back has been in pain for the 2 wks now. So I'm taking it easy these days until the pain is gone. Other than that I'm feeling great!

Thanks Deborah. It makes sense to do in cold weather and if it helps with chest discomfort, I'll try it. It's 19 degrees F this morning, so don' think I'll be going out for awhile!!!

Arlene, actually my cardiac nurse told me that any extremes in temperature can cause that problem. Try covering your mouth and nose with a scarf when you are out walking.

Care deeply, share generously, help willingly and above all, be kind.

When walking dogs this morning, had some chest discomfort - mainly going uphill - similar to before I was put on a beta blocker. But it was cold -- I'm wondering if breathing in the really cold air could make my chest hurt. Other than that, OK
