Congestive Heart Failure in a 27-year old

My son is 27 and has been experiencing pressure in his chest, waking up in the middle of the night gasping for air, etc. He went to an urgent care clinic - they suggested that he may have Congestive Heart Failure, maybe a virus that is causing the symptoms. His chest xrays were clear, his chest sounded fine ... I've never heard of a young person with this diagnosis.

Is this unusual? If it's a virus, what are the ramifications, treatment, etc?

I'm surprised no one has answered your post and I don't know if you will see my answer after all of this time. The reality of it is that many chilren as well as infants suffer from CHF as well. It's not unusual for a 27 year old to have CHF, especially if it was caused by a virus, which most are.
