Did you have any other tests done?
Treadmill stress test?
Scheduled, but a panic attack stopped this from happening.
24 hour monitor?
3 in three months.
Holter 1- Virtually no PVC's, but showed 13 beats of non-sustained v-tach..... was taken off Zoloft.... Cadiologist did not seem concerned.
Holter 2- Clear.... no PVC's or anything else
Holter 3- Clear with the exception of some PVC's
Do you have irregular heart beats (arrhythmias)?
Any other symptoms?
When anxiety is at its peak, getting air feels difficult.
From the echo test results you quote, it sounds like your heart function is excellent.
My cardio said the same thing.
Many people have prolapsed valves that don't need to be treated. Congenital refers to a condition at birth.
At this point, he wouldnt even diagnose me with MVP, as I have no clicking, or murmur.... the echo simply said "mild leaflet prolapse suggested"
It would be a good idea to ask the cardiologist how often you might need to check an echo again
He said in a couple years.
In my experience ( as a cardiac nurse ), most physicians won't treat valves until there are significant problems.
He said that he couldn't even confirm that I have a bicuspid, nor would he confirm MVP.... he predicted that neither will amount to anything in my lifetime.
Also, if you continue to have dizziness or new and more frequent symptoms, you should go back to the cardiologist or your family physician.
If I went to a doctor everytime I am dizzy.....thats all I would get done.
It also never hurts to get a second opinion, if you are uncomfortable. You could also go back to have more time for questions with this doctor.
I've seen the cardio 6 times, family doctor 7 times....in 5 months....they're both sick of me. The family doctor is a 31 year old rookie fresh outta med school who will schedule 7 tests if you describe a hangnail, the cardio is a 61 year old veteran from the Cleavland Clinic.... who thinks I am a hypochandriac.
It is good to write down all your questions before hand, and just ask for an appointment to clarify.
I always do. Thanks for your reply.
