I have recently developed a wooshing pulsating sound in my left ear that I mostly hear at night when in bed. The sound comes and goes. My cardiologist is not concerned at all about it. I have a bioprosthetic valve and wanted to know if anyone here has experience similar symptoms.
I just had a clean TEE which means the warfarin and aspirin are working and the blood clot on my valve is dissolved. Not sure why eliquis didn't work before that. Boy I was relieved! Am cleared to start training for a 5k. Still have some dizzy spells and a new symptom of pulsating tinnitus. Cardiologist doesn't seem too concerned. Coming up on 1 year post op. Thankful to God who has helped me every step of the way.
Just had a TEE done due to TIA symptoms. Turns out I have a blood clot on my bioprosthetic valve (Edwards Lifesciences). They've switched me from Eliquis to Warfarin in hopes that will solve the problem. Has anyone had a blood clot form on their valves? This was, obviously, discouraging news for me. But it explains my TIA symptoms.
Keep getting brief dizzy spells (last about 2 minutes and come on suddenly and randomly). Scary episode while on the elliptical last week. Had a dizzy spell and became nauseous. My heart rate was about 135 when it happened. No chest pains. I'm now getting a heart monitor to wear to see if its related to my heart. Pretty discouraging. I haven't worked out since but my heart doctors wants me to start back up once I get the monitor. Hopefully it isn't related to my heart valve.
