Been having trouble finding much out about this;

Essentially I was in the hospital and my ejection fraction was low, since then my numbers have improved and my heart seems fine. BUT if I take ANY cialis at all 5-20mg I have chest pain for hours, I get weird burping too, symptoms point to not enough blood flow to the heart??? I'm clearly done with the dick pills for the time being, but has anyone experience this?

I've never heard of this but I have to admit this is quite interesting. Have you experienced this with VIAGRA or LEVITRA? I would definitely leave the CIALIS alone if its causing you that kind of trouble.

Just throwing this out there, but do you have GERD? Your symptoms sound like they could be related to acid reflux or indigestion. Also, could be the opposite and you might have too little stomach acid.

Again, if you want to play it safe, get checked out or drop the cialis.

I havent used either and before this I hadnt had trouble with cialis prwo, it only started when I was overdosing on the thryoid meds which gave my heart some strain. Been to the hospital recently and the cleared me, my hearts back to baseline but the cialis still gives me heart ache.

That was my first thought, ive been checking this for months now, the only time it happens is with the cialis.

As MassiveG said, if anything it should have the opposite effect. It sounds like you are experiencing acid reflux. See how you tolerate Betaine HCl.

What was the cause of your heart issues, simply the thyroid usage? Was it only a low ejection fraction or a dilation as well?

All PDE5's cause acid reflux with me, especially if I've had some drinks. With viagra it can be brutal.

My viagra "kit" always contains the following. Take two antacid's before taking viagra and take as needed when on it. And a quick hit of Afrin nasal spray so I can breathe through my nose while doing the deed without sounding like an obese mouth breather lol.

Viaga, antacid, afrin and I'm good to go.

I think it was either 30% or 35% where they advised me to get my defibrillator implanted. So yeah, be concerned. Mine now is about 20% or so and my defibrillator has gone off more than half a dozen times. If you get off all the juice yours might go up, that is if you are on now. That happened to me once. I was down around 38% or so and mine got back up to about 55% after being clean for about 11 months. If you are on now, get off right away, no questions asked.

Good, then you are taking a dose that is safe. Same dose I take. The nuclear test is more accurate but they are both very good. You had a muga scan before?

How much time will pass in between the two tests being run? Is the doctor a cardiologist? He should be concerned by that low of a number. I don't have any water retention or energy loss either and mine is 20%. My problem is rhythm. Were you taking more hormones back when you got the low EF reading? More than the 100 mg/wk.

Wondering what kind of diagnosis the cardiologists gave you. When mine was like that they called it idiopathic cardiomyopathy, meaning that they didn't know the cause of the cardiomyopathy. Find out what they said about wall motion in the test too.

Just depends on what is wrong with your heart. If it turns out like how mine was youll get back to normal and be ok. Just don't go back on steroids again. Try to go natural, give it 12 months and get your levels tested. If it is still really low then got on HRT like I did. See an endo or go to one of those male clinics that specialize in HRT.

I got back on the steroids and then had my heart attack years later. If I hadn't gone back on I would be fine today. Please start a thread later and let us know how the new echo test results come back on your ejection fraction.

Yes, be smart. With me it seemed the steroids caused my cardiomyopathy. When I got off them for about 11 months I was normal enough in my echo that the cardiologist told me that he didn't need to see me anymore. I had been honest with him and told him about my steroid use. It was so obvious that they had caused it, because when I got off it started to go up right away, that he felt I was going to be just fine when I hit around 55% to 60%. Cant remember the exact number. That was back around 2003 or so.

I was stupid and got back on. I tried to convince myself that I had a virus that caused the condition and that it wasn't the steroids. Then years later I got the blood clot.

Some people just shouldn't use the stuff at all and most shouldn't be using as much as they do. This can be deadly. Since you have had your warning sign I pray that you heed it now and be safe. Please don't do what I did. I almost caused my wife to lose her husband and my two young children to lose their dad. I am still fighting to stay alive.

Cialis is definitely known to cause acid reflux
