Hi all, I'm new to the site and looking for some help, please.
In November I was rushed to hospital with pneumonia, which I'd never had before and the diagnosis was Type 2 respiratory failure and possible heart failure. I was admitted to intensive care and stayed there for 5 days then onto a ward. While in ITU they diagnosed COPD and I had episodes of SVT where the heart beats really fast, mine was over 200 beats per minute. Both are being handled by medication, although at this moment in time it's not stable.
My question is: With COPD do you get a coldness in the chest, around the heart? Does anyone else have this combination and how long did it take to work out which one was the cause of problem.
