Hi there, i have not been officially diagnosed with this condition but so much of my symptoms echo what i read so i am preparing myself or the diagnosis. i had my son 8-3-14. Seven days later i was told by the er that i was in heart failure. two days after that i had a echo which came back mormal and my dr said the heart failure was caused by the volume overload from pregnancy and delivery. Now four months later i still have symptoms, though none nearly as severe as the very first time( swelling, difficulty breathing and not being able to lay down without gasping for air). i am so scared of being told that i do have this disease. i have anxiety attacks and am obsessed with investgating it. i have a dr appt tuesday. please pray for me! has this particular situation ever happened to anyone. simple fluid overload? and what was your symptoms
