Heart condition

Wednesday, August 15, 2012

After 41 yrs of numerous ecgs, echos, doctors, hospitals, blood tests, xrays and finally an mri the specialist has finally told me what is wrong with my heart. There is a flap of skin over the aortic valve which is affecting the flow of blood, making a very original sucky noise! One that many medical staff have been called in to listen to as it is so rare. This apparently means that my heart is having to work harder and finally this needs to be treated. I've been put on a mild dose of beta blockers for 6 months to see if my symptoms improve. They are only 1.25mgs once a day and I have only taken three but I feel so ill since taking them, much worse than before, do I really need them I ask myself!

Whinge whinge, moan moan! lol

    Good luck. I hope you come to tolerate the beta blockers - or find that they're not necessary after a while.

    I hope they fix it quickly so you can get back to life
