:(i originally posted this in a different forum, so if you read it, sorry.
I have been having chest pains that are very painful, where i can't breath, passed out, dizzy, nauseous, left arm goes numb... i have been to the er and my dr. and my cardio dr.
i was born with a hole, had a closed vsd in 1981 when i was one. everything was good until a couple a years ago when they found another hole. they were just going to watch it. then then end of last year i started having all this chest pain. i have had everything, including a transesoghogeal (sp) echo. that showed another small hole. they told me that they don't know why i am having the chest pain. my cardio dr. told me "not to worry." that i'm fine. but i can't help but worry when my chest hurts so badly, i'm fainting and can't breath! everyone seems to think i am crazy, but i know that something isn't right. where do i go from here?
