Photopenia
I recently had a stress done.  I am having significant abdominal bloating and they connot figure out why.  Since I have a very strong history of heart disease and my age, they did the stress test and abdominal and pelvic CAT Scan with and without dye.  No free abdominal and pelvic fluid noted.  Everything normal except labs which shows I have iron deficiency anemia.  Their impression on stress test was:  1.  No definite significant reversible stress-induced ischemia.  2. Small area of mild completely reversible photopenia along the distal anterior wall and apex, demonstrating normal kinetics, and therefore, probably artifactual.  However, follow-up is recommended.  3)  Normal LVEF of 78% .   I worry because my mother had heart attach at age 42 and father had quadruple bypass surgery.  What is the photopenia, not sure what this means.  They are also sending me to a gastroenterologist for follow-up as nothing shows on Abdominal CAT scan.  I have gained 11 pounds in less than 10 days and feel like I'm 7 mos pregnant.  No Ob-GYN problems.
