Myocardial bridging
What does this look like and will a blood thinner really help?  Besides weight lose, is there anything else I do to have quality life?  I am 72 and over weight.     Thank you and God bless.

Hi, myocardial bridge is an anomaly characterized by a typical intramyocardial route of a segment of one of the major coronary arteries. Blood thinners may not help and majority of people with this anomaly are asymptomatic. However, if blood supply to the heart is compromised, you may then need surgical intervention. Please discuss this with your doctor am sure he will provide further assistance. In the meantime you can focus on controlling high risk factors like obesity, hypertension, diabetes and dyslipidemia. Regards.

Thank you, I found this information helpful for me to understand and know what question to ask my heart doctor.  It was not explained to me just what it is.  I do have another question;  if I was born with this condition, with a number of test I had received in the past, why wasn't this mentioned before?  Thank you again, I do appreciate the facts and explanations.
