Worried about thallium test results

Hi, I am 41yrs old. I have recently had a thallium stress test and though there was no signs of angina or heart attack it did show mitral value incompetence, a LV ejection fraction of 38%, RV ejection fraction of 29% and RV globally hypo kinetic. I have systems of breathlessness, chest pain and sometimes extreme tiredness.  I am currently waiting for an ECHO.  What could all this mean? I am very worried.

These findings are concerning if not previously documented and without a clear cause.  I recommend that you seek a thorough evaluation from a cardiologist to determine the cause of these findings.  If you are currently having symptoms of chest pain or dyspnea, I recommend that you seek medical attention immediately.
