Hi All, I went for a chest x ray as I have been breathless,very tired etc and it came back saying they'd spotted an enlarged heart . I have had the ECG and that was normal and am waiting for the echocardiogram but my doctor has told me she doesn't think it'll show a thing. She says enlarged hearts are often misdiagnosed on x rays.Has anyone else had this happen? I still want to have the echo done as I feel swelled up with fluid too.

Are people often told they have enlarged hearts and they don't?

many thanks
