  1. Im always told that my heart is normal, but the thing is, whenever i get episodes of not breathing well, too much pressure, fatigued, etc. It does show up on the monitor whenever i feel something but afterwards, its all negative (normal). I was told, well my parents were told that i inherited a heart murmur and had a "leaking valve". Its not lethal at all, but i cant be treated due to my heart developing (the tissues can be damaged easily) and how surgeries are very risky and expensive so no. Im just told i cant do anything except grow out of it and as i grow, my episodes occur more and more rare. But another thing is, becoming stress and have my anxiety triggered makes it more frequent and painful so yeah…not a good experience.

    But hey, at least i dont have a hole in my heart just like my dad side of the family has

  2. Nice but in the drawing it’s showing that the right ventricle is bigger than the left ventricle. I think this is a big mistake.

  3. i’m 13 and heart diseases run in the family. i have been incredibly tired no matter on how much sleep i get. and doing simple things like getting up or going up some stairs makes me lose breath and my heart pumps rapidly. (no i am not overweight and/or have high blood pressure) i don’t want to be jumping to conclusions, i would really like to go to a doctor…. but my whole family says it nothing. advise?

  4. I have this mildly and have to have another ECG done in 3 years time I have no symptoms just by chance I had a scan as my brother had a heart problem so all the family had to be checked out
