I have been diagnosed with Cardiomyopathy, Neurocardiogenic syncope, LFBBB,
1. LV ejection fraction is significantly reduced globally suggesting a cardiomyopathy.
2. Abnormal septal motion due to LBBB.
3. LV EF around 40%
4. Diastolic dysfunction also present.
I have seen three cardiologists in the same pratice at the hospital over the last 2 years and have had four TIA's over the last month (mini-strokes) with a mild heart attack and fourth TIA just last week.
They found that my LV EF is now around 35% and I was told to go and see a Neurologists, because the Dr said the stroke was a Grand Mal seizure "WHAT"? and he is taking me off the "Tropol" as I am also on blood pressure medicine (he said too many meds) What am I supposed to do, sit back and wait to die or am I over reacting? The cardiologist told me that I will grow out of this when I went to see him today!!! :confused:
I am 43 yr old female, Non smoker/drinker. Please someone, anyone, please help me understand all of this. My Mother died at the age of 32 with the same problems. Please help.
