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?
