I was wondering if you could help me please..
10 months ago i went to my GP and found out i had a heart murmur and did a ultra sound scan test of my heart, i found out i had a leaky valve, my GP said it wasnt serious and to keep active. a few weeks later I wasnt feeling to good, and i picked up my shopping and had strong chest pains, they only lasted about 5 mins.. i went back to my GP and had a EGC and they said it was all normal. i keep having chest pains, my ankles have swollen up , i dont feel to good in general and im always tired..
Im not asking if it was a heart attack, im just asking if the chest pains, feeling tired and swollen ankles are conected?
How old are you? What is your gender? What is your occupation? What is your family history? What are your habits? And so on - there are many question one would have to have answered to give you proper direction. What valve is involved? How bad is the leak? What is the state of your heart muscle?
It doesn't sound like your heart valve has anything to do with your chest pains. What kind of pains are you having? Then you say, "I don't feel good in general and I am always tired."
Your story merits sitting down with a physician and going over all your symptoms, having a proper physical examination, and leading to whatever tests are necessary to clarify your medical condition (which should be explained to you so that there is no doubt).
Im 39, female and my family has a history of heart conditions, i have a heart murmur, thats why i was sent to have a ultra scan and they found i had a sticky valve.. i have been having feeling pressure on my chest and sharp pains that lasts 5 mins or soo.. but it could be just stress.. and i do have a thyroid problem too.. im hypo with and goter, always family related..
thanks for the reply
