Hi G.K. Chamarthi, Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum.
Are you Hypertensive? If yes, since how long? Your 2D Echo report suggests there is no Regional Wall Motion Abnormality (RWMA), which is normal and there is Left Ventricular Hypertrophy which is common in Patients with Hypertension. Not to worry as there is nothing serious in your case. Just exercise regularly and avoid high calorie foods. Limit your salt intake and take your Medications regularly and go for regular follow up. If you are overweight reduce your weight.

Good Luck.

Hi, So my Grandpa is 89 and is curently in the hospital. He has had Atrial Fibrillation for sometime now but has been very healthy up until the last couple months. He wil be fine one day then wake up the next and not be able to breath, walk and then is very confused and disoriented. We have him on blood thinners and are just trying to get to the bottom of whats happening. they feel these epsisodes are either caused from his heart or from these mini strokes in his brain. I just want another opinion or maybe some advice on possible treatments for him. he is a very strong man and is a fighter and wants to get better... any thoughts?

My mother just turned 80 and used to be very very healthy (has always taken very good of herself) until recently I think she quit taking blood pressure medicine 2 years ago and lost a pet and recently moved. Her feet and ankles were swollen and took her to doctor and they ran blood tests, ekg, chest x-ray and ultrasound will be this week. Doc said she had high blood pressure, atrial Fab, and maybe valve problems and presc. blood pressure medicine, baby aspirin, and high blood pressure medicine. She has been extremly forgettful and sleeps all the time now. Once, she is stablized w/meds and after fridays follow-up (more meds or surgery), do you think she will have more energy, less sleep, and more interest in activities?
