temporary vision loss

Has anyone experienced temporary vision loss in one eye? I read that it could be caused by blockages in your arteries. I have had it happen a handful of times lately (on top of chest pains) and it has me worried. Has anyone with heart issues experience this?

Re: Diagnosed recently!

Hi, I was just curious if you had any signs or symptoms prior to your heart attack? I had KD over 30 years ago and recently I've been having pretty bad chest pains. I had blood work, ekgs, chest xrays, and a stress test. Everything came back normal. The chest pains continued though, and much to my d...

Re: I had KD 30 years ago

Rvc12553 have you ever had an angiogram? From what I understand that is the one test that is sure to show if there is a problem. Other people say that they passed all the other tests with flying colors but an agiogram showed major blockages in their coronary arteries leading to bypass surgery. So li...

Re: My story 22 years later.

I am a fellow KD survivor, I had it before I turned two and I've made it to 32. I rarely get sick, but when I do it's awful! It's funny you mention the body heat issue, I also run normal temps but my husband says I feel like I'm on fire lol. I wonder if other KD survivors experience the same? I have...

Re: 30 years later....

kdwife, I was diagnosed, I spent about a week in the hospital. As far as follow up, I don't remember any. I've recently started having pretty bad chest pains after I exercise, even after the ache goes away I'm left with a feeling of pressure on my chest which makes it feel hard to breathe. Normally ...

Re: Long term joint pain

Do you give her zinc? I'm not sure if it helped my joints or my muscles but when I was little my mom made me take it religiously.

Re: 46 year old survivor

I had a trip to the ER yesterday because I've had a feeling of pressure on my chest, like someone put a weight on my sternum. Then yesterday I got pain in my upper back like someone punched me on either side of my spine making the muscles almost feel bruised, followed by feeling extremely tired. I i...

Re: 30 years later....

I had separation anxiety after having KD from what my mom said, probably because of the hospital stay. I didn't have seasonal allergies though. I was weaker than my peers, and I got Charlie horses in my legs a lot. I was also diagnosed with runner's asthma in eighth grade. I don't remember anything ...

Re: 46 year old survivor

Rascotttx, If you don't mind me asking, what did your your chest pain start out like? We're you ever diagnosed with "runner's" asthma? I had kd in '83 and I started having trouble running in 8th grade, one day I was fine in gym (other than I was always weaker than my classmates) and the next day I f...

30 years later....

I was diagnosed with KD 30 years ago, the first case in southwest MI. I was just curious as to what long term side-effects people have experienced? I guess I always looked at it as something I lived through and it was done and over, never really thought it might still have an effect on me.

Re: 26 years later and I can still call myself a survivor.

Wow it's amazing to read that people have gone through the same exact things I did! I was diagnosed right before I turned two, so I have very little recall of what actually happened. I know that I was the first diagnosed case in Southwest Michigan, and that they drove in bus loads of medical student...
