Aortic stenosis I was born with Aortic stenosis. What I know is i was born with 2 chambers instead of the normal 3 in the Aortic valve. I am 36 year old female. I have had 3 kids starting from a young age of 16. In my younger years I have had a few test done on my heart. It was a very long time spent and the only thing I remember the doctors saying is it seems to have had no change , it has remained just the same. (this was about 12 years ago ,was the last time I had my heart looked over.) Now that I m older I find myself more worried about the issue in fear of something like a heart attack and ending my life to soon. I know I m not in the best of health . Lack of proper exercise and improper eating habits. And to make things worse I m currently without health insurance. So I m asking for any advice i could do for myself to help increase my life time here . Any advice would be great in hopes to lighten my fears I now have. Thank you honestly.
While sleeping, I feel a rhythmic tapping internally, much faster than pulse. It feels like heart palpitations, but my pulse is consistent when it is occurring. I am not sweating, and there is no pain. I have worn a Halter monitor for 24 hours, with no irregularities noted. Doctors seem stumped....any ideas? Low blood pressure?
My son is 24 and healthy, however since high school his bp has been consistently around 137/77. He had Echocardiogram and the results were ok except the doctor mentionrd his heart was slightly enlarged but healthy. His w eight is normal, he eats right, avoids salt and is physically active. I do not know what to think about it. Should he seek cardiologist s advice or just watch his bp? I would appreciate an answer. Thank you
