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!
 
Help?

hi kathy. no you are not going to drop dead. test results have a stack of markers that mean various things. if there was a problem your c cardiologist would have said something. trust me, they don't want the litigation!! most likely from pvc. you have been given the ok by 2 specialists, and had done testing. try and relax, it will help with ya bp. i too have hypertension. try some relax techniques. keep strong. i am sure other members will pop in with further information.
