If anyone has been following my story, you know that I was diagnosed with mild left ventricular hypertrophy. I've been to my cardiologist twice and both times he's told me I'm healthy, and I have no restrictions what's so ever. The last few days I've been having chest pain on the left side bascailly right below my armpit and it lines up with my breast, not to mention I'm having palpitations. Those are my only symptoms. I'm so scared that the LVH has gotten worse, or I'm about to have a heart attack. I could use some kind words

Megan, I went back & read your prior posts. You have been under stress & your anxiety is in high gear. Your cardiologist has explained that you have nothing to worry about.

Work on getting your anxiety under control. If you are not seeing a dr for it, you need to. Take care.

I agree with Susie, your symptoms are being caused by anxiety. You need to accept your cardiologist's determination that you are fine and move on with your life.

de-stress my friend. do some slow deep breathing. in deep thru the nose, hold for 3 sec, and slowly blow out-via the mouth in a long continious breath. repeat a few times.
