I normally post on the Lupus board but I thought I would come over here because I have a lot of heart problems. I have had mild pulmonary stenosis since birth. I now have moderate pulmonary stenosis, mild aortic stenosis, heart enlargement and leaky valves. Today I was having some problems so I went to the Cardio and she is concerned that I may have a shunt. Does anyone here have that? Could you share with me what symptoms you have and what has been done for it?
I am scheduled to have a CT of my chest and heart, an echocardiogram with bubbles and a 48 hour HOlter Monitor on Friday. The doctor also mentioned the possibility of an anomaly of the veins of my heart or a possible pulmonary emoboli. I am getting pretty worried about all this. I was just diagnosed in June with Lupus and now it seems like my whole body is falling apart.
Well,thanks for listening.
