Current symptoms are: short of breath, fatigue, feel very weak, bp either too low or too high, legs swelling. Told by at least (3) doctors that I also have congestive heart failure and recently diagnosed with A-fib.

My primary care doctor says "you don't have CHF and do not have an enlarged heart. Very frustrating ! ! !

Based on what I've read in Mayo clinic website, These sound like the classic symptoms of Cardiomegaly (enlarged heart).

Can anyone relate to the above and if so I would appreciate hearing from you.

I'm very frustrated dealing with this PCP, she makes me feel like a hypochondriac but I feel something just isn't right.

I've also read mitral valve regurgation is also associated with enlarged heart. I was diagnosed with this before my heart surgery in '89 and several times since.

Thanks for listening.
