My 14 year old son died 2 yrs ago of a coronary artery anomaly that was not detected even though he had tests. He had an echo and ECG but nothing was found, anyone else going through this horrific experience ?
i am so sorry for your loss. when i was at school the son of one of the teacher's died of a very similar thing - he was a very healthy sports playing boy - i think this is more common than people realize; hopefully medical science will recognise whatever factor causes this very soon. best wishes to you and strength to cope with such an awful tragedy.

I recently had a nuclear EKG , due to an anomaly noticed on a routine stress EKG, which turns out to show the effects of blockage in my arteries. I m 58 and have been active my whole life. At ideal weight, never smoked, blood work shows no major issues with total cholesterol and no physical symptoms. So now I m going Vegan, maintaining a consistent exercise routine and taking statins. My question is: Is artery blockage reversible? My cardiologist says with low LDL, driven down by statins and diet, can reverse the blockage. What is your take and any other suggestions? THX

Hi I have had a holter ecg done and my average heart rate was 111 with the highest 180 and the lowest 60. I am very tired and feel as if I am trembling the whole time. I get breathless very easily and feel very emotional. The ecg was not normal but my GP merely said that I had a few extra beats. Should I be worried?
I have been on Coumadin for 3 years. In December of 2013 I had a complete knee replacement and the surgeon put me on Xarelto. I want to go back on Coumadin because I feel more confident if I know the numbers of how thin/thick my blood is each month. Can I switch back to Coumadin (Warfarin) without any bad side effects? I do have a pacemaker and also have occasional episodes of atrial fib.
