Im concerned as my mother went fur an endoscopy but it was cancelled as her heart rate was 132 which is very high .She has low ferritin of 8 and low hemaglobin of 10.6. She has a history of high blood pressure therefore I'm concenrned re heart failure .She also has swollen ankles for around 2,3 years now .
