Hi,
 
I'm 21 years old and Ive had cardiomyopathy since birth and had a operation when I was 2 year old to fix a 'hole in my heart'.
 
I've been experiencing been really tired and off balance like I have a head cold and I've been pretty anxious with it. but I was wondering if this common with people with the same problem.
Ive had it on several occations I just think it maybe a viral cold or a side effect of my medication. I've had it for about a week and its settling down due to rest.
 
Thank you
 
Jem

You sx could be from a viral infection however they could also be from something else.  If you are still feeling ill I would suggest it is time to see a Dr. for a medical screening exam.
 
Let us know how you are doing ?

Yes could be viral, but it feels like blood pressure. but its been like this most of the week. With a bit more rest I'll see how I go.

Thank you :)

Be sure to be your own best advocate and do see a Dr. if you don't start to feel well soon.   Have you been dx with hypertension in the past ?

Aye good advice and I havn't been to the doctors mentioning hypertension no, I've spoke to my parents and they say best to mention it and check my BP.

Regards,

Been to the doctors and saw the nurse, she checked my BP and its fine. - She advised me to make an appointment to see my GP. - She suggested that it could be anemia but Ive been tested for that loads of times. I'll see what the doctor says next thursday.
