Hi I've been looking and I'm new to this site but I need some information BAD!! On Wednesday (10/24/07) I had a appointment with the doctor that's at my college early morning. So I go and talk with her and she says that I have a heart murmur lack of asking and her telling me blew my mind! I thought I was going to die, but then I found out my mama had one so I was as freaked out as before. So she said that she was concerned at the fact my blood pressure was so high (170 over 60 or 160 over 40 or 140 over 60), and she felt it would be best to go get some blood work and go see my PCP. So I went to go see my PCP and she and her assistant checked me out. My blood pressure was still high and I had told her as well as the doctor form school that I haven't had my period in four years. So my doctor scheduled this appointments for me to go to. The first one which is next Thursday (11/1) is for a sonogram for seeing why I don't get a period and she mentioned something about me having ovarian something that's may be the cause of it. She and her assistant also noticed that my thyroid gland on the right hand side was enlarged and she also recommended that I get a sonogram for that that's going to take two days! She told me that might also be the reason of not having a period. But this is the first time this happened I had no clue or idea about what she was talking about and I'm scared to death for the fact my cousin had thyroid cancer and they cut open her next to fix it and if they have to do that to me I'm going to flipped out for good!

So do you know what I have?

  • I think people live with a heart murmur without complications. You could/should see a specialist to get their opinion and to see if anything else is going on...probably want to do a stress test. Your thyroid could be causing problems. You definitely need to be under the care of a competent endocrinologist, not some doctor's assistant. You should probably get a needle biopsy (it does not hurt at all) just to rule out the cancer. Your glands could be messing with your periods, and that should be addressed by the endocrinologist, after you have an ultra sound of your uterus.

  • Donā€™t be too freaked out by a heart murmur. Lots of people have them. I have one also. It is not necessarily the sign of a severe heart problem. To find out some good information on High Blood Pressure and on your heart, go to the American Heart Association Forum and click on High Blood Pressure and also click on the heart http://www.medicinenet.com/high_blood_pressure High blood pressure can be caused by something called Secondary Hypertension or Essential Hypertension. Secondary hypertension. This means that the hypertension in these individuals is secondary to (caused by) a specific disorder of a particular organ or blood vessel, such as the kidney, adrenal gland, or aortic artery.

  • Have you Dr. check your pH balance. Cancer can't live in an alkaline body. Acidosis causes many health concerns is major problem here in the USA and it is overlooked.
