  • Chest Pains on dialysis

    today for the first time in dialysis (4 months), i got chest pains in my heart on dialysis. My Creatine Kinase and Troptopin were raised at 312 and 178 respectively. They stopped my dialysis early and then the pain stopped. They suspected an infarct and think i will need a stent to free up my arteries. Since this only happened for the first time today, im really confused. Before i begun dialysis i did alot of long distance running and ate raw vegan with alot of distilled water and green juice, which probably messed up my electrolytes but should have at least insured my arteries are clear. Maybe the problem is the EPO im getting 3x per week as my haemoglogin was so very low. I believe EPO can cause clots which could hinder the blood flow to the heart. Does anybody have any experience of chest pains on dialysis and what was it, what was the outcome/solution ?

    thank you.
