Hi from newbie. I can't quite understand what is going on.
May have had an MI on 13 Nov 06
Diagnosis after an echo in Dec 06 "conceivable she has cardiomyopathy' Why not a firm diagnosis?
A few weeks ago, I fell very ill. I went to my GP and told her I was sure I was in heart failure. No action except for routine blood tests.
Desperately ill, went to a private cardio. Had a BNP and an echo.
Diagnosis: BPN - 330 pc/ml and the echo says "left ventricle is mildly dilated. Borderline septal hypokinesis. What does this means?
Trace mitral regurgitation, trace triscupid regurgiation, aorticl valve is trileaflet. What does this means?
this private cardio suggest and angiogram to determine the cause in order to give the right meds?
Why am I not given a firmer diagnosis and have not been put on meds yet?
Should I seek a second opinion?
Looking forward to your responses, am desperate for answers.
