Hi everyone:
Diagnosis in Nov 06:  "conceivable she has cardiomyopathy'
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.
Echo says "left ventricle is mildly dilted.  Borderline septal hypokinesis.  What does this means?
Trace mitral regurgitation, trace triscupid regurgiation, aorticl valve is trileaflet.  What does this means?
Why am I not given a firmer diagnosis and have not been put on meds yet?
Should I seek a second opinion?
Many thanks

Hi daizy, welcome to healing well forum.  I am not a doctor nor do I have this condition so I cant really comment on your diagnosis or findings of your tests here.  I would however say if your not feeling comfortable with the level of care that your getting at this point then most certianly get a second opinion.  In any case it is good to get one regardless when your diagnosed with something of this magnitute.

I have seen other members post regarding this same thing so hang tight...sometimes the heart forum here gets a little slow but I am sure they will be along shortly to post replies and advice/suggestions to you.  Please do keep posting, I hope you find it helps with information and support.  Take care
