I see that my right side is pulling my clothes at the shoulder and has extra fat at the arm pit. Can this have anything to do with my weak heart?
Yes having and weak heart and two bad heart valves can and will cause the swelling.The right arm swelling is a sign of pulmonary failure and you should contact your cardiologist ASAP. This is also one of the things that says ER now. What you are calling fat is edema and when one side swells ahead of the other it is a major and possible life threatening condition.
