Sounds like a possible heart arrhythmia, Firemed. Might be a good idea for her to get an EKG (short panel at a minimum) and have a cardiologist listen for any other possible anomalies.

Thanks for the reply...

I'm thinking "unstable angina", since she has that warm feeling rushing over her as well as the numbness in her hands and tingling sensation. Either way she needs an EKG and a stress test. Taking a daily aspirin might not be a bad idea.

While I agree this lady should be properly diagnosed could the warm feeling be anything to do with the hormones she's taking or the menopause? - or even the diuretic?

I ask about the 'water pill' because I used to have a similar effect after only one glass of wine or any other alcohol which would also have a diuretic effect.

Does she have a history of CHF? There has to be a siginifcant and important reason for that water pill.

Sure get the tests done. Give it a name but watch out for those drugs they will want her to take!

Look into Colostrum from http://www.excellentthings.com/
This will strengthen the heart muscle. 500mg per 50 lbs of weight 2xday.

Next is serrapeptase. This will rotorooter the vessels and reestablish good blood flow. The serrapeptase sold at excellentthings may be good but I get mine from here:
http://www.serrapeptase.info/buy.html
use their Blockbuster Allclear for a few months then you can go to a less expensive serrapeptase product

and and excellent vitamen E product with mixed tocotrinols.

And Antarctic Krill oil.

and my opinion of aspirin is very very low and even 81 mg is now reported to be harmful for some and doubly harmful when combined with certain other drugs.. The serrapeptase will cover that ground as will the vit E.

Excellent suggestions, Barbara. Nattokinase and lecithin are also good fibrinolytic "roto rooter" supplements, as long as you're careful about not thinning your blood too much.

Default ASA

How about just normal ASA? 1 child tablet/day.

At any dosage, ASA is not as harmless as most people believe. Use it if that's all you have, but be vigilant. The natural substances mentioned above can thin her blood and provide their other therapeutic effects with less risk.
