Hi all: I am 60 year old female and I am very anxious and upset so any help would be appreciated. I was just diagnosed with Hypertension and started meds which seem to be helping. Until 2 months ago my BP was always normal. I went to the hospital recently for chest pain that they decided was no heart related after having various tests and going to a Cardilogist and getting a nuclear stree test---they say it is GERD. However, when I looked at my test result on the hospital website, it said they found Mild Cardiomegaly on my chest X-ray.
Why didn't anyone (my PCP or my Cardiologist OR the ER Drs.) mention this? I am scared to death. I have always had benign PVC's, can this cause this? I am having a fir that I will drop dead any minute!
