A 2D Echo revealed "mildly dilated aortic root with dilated left coronary artery;mild mitral regurgitation and pulmonic regurgitation". A TEE and Stress test--Bruce Protocol concludes a normal TEE study and maximal symptom limited exercise test, normal blood pressure response to exercise, fair exercise tolerance, negative test for ischemia at 7.7 METS respectively.
What does it mean? The physician told me that I have PR and it's just normal for all individuals. On the other hand, I feel that something isn't normal at all. I have palpitations, bilateral weakness in the arms and legs, persistent head ache ( at the back portion) and pressure-filled ears ( i don't know the right term).
At this moment, I am hesitant to settle with the findings as it negates what i am experiencing. Please enlighten me on this.What is the accurate test (if any) to address my concern?
