Our primary care doc is referring my 13 year old daugher to a pediatric cardiologist. Her symptoms first seemed like Mono. I then suspected Lyme Disease but since it's not common in our area, he insists he thinks it's her heart. I've listed her symptoms below. Just wondering if anyone else experienced these symptoms and what cardio diagnosis you received. Our appt. isn't for 2 weeks and I'm a nervous wreck. In the meantime, she is also seeing an infectious disease doctor on Monday.
Racing Heart Rate
Intermittent Severe Sore Throat
Loss of Appetite
Eye and Ear Pain
Tremors (unexplained shaking)
Weakness, shaking and pain in her legs
Extreme fatigue (sleeping sometimes up to 18 hours)
Boughts of extreme emotional sensitivity -- cries easily during these times
Recent infection on her knee that appeared to be MRSA (antibiotic-resistant staph) but staph culture came back negative
I know some of these are very general but just wondering if anyone else experienced them, especially during adolescence, and ended up with a cardio diagnosis.
