Hi guys...so its confirmed that I have a hole in my heart...to be exact a PFO. The doctor says that in some cases the symptoms Im describing are sometimes seen in patients with a heart disorder called a PFO. My symptoms are vision problems as some of u know (I talk about the darn vision things alot and very thankful for those of you that are always willing to respond and show your support). For those of you that don't know, I see sparkles and have palinopsia which means I see trails and afterimages. So can anyone talk to me more about PFO and if it seems possible to have vision problems due to a PFO????

Not glad you have those problems, but certainly glad they dx it.  Sounds complex.  Hope someone comes in that's relate to it.

I had a PFO and had it closed three weeks ago. Feel free to ask me any questions. :)
