atrial fibrillation

Hi there i am 38 years old and it took 5 years to find my heart problem, i was a lucky guy . three times i was at my local hospital , and sent home , even having all the complains , chest pain , fatigue, syncope, shortness of breath , and most of all the bed all sweat each morning. ECG  no ischemia heart rate 184/ an echo  showed 25% ejection faction, the reason i think i have 5 years is this was the first time i began to sweat so bad in bed and it was a after a long haul flight, so whats your take on this ? now i have scar tissue now to the left venticual . thanks  mike

An ejection fraction of 25% could indicate you have heart cell necrosis (dead cells), or it could be the heart cells are surviving on a low amount of oxygen and is medically termed cell hibernation.  Either way there is an impairment of heart wall movement (hypokinesis),  If the cells are in hibernation, a restoration of good blood flow can revitalize the heart cells.  

Seven years ago I had had a silent heart attack, enlarged left ventricle, occluded vessels, an EF below 29%, congested heart failure...There was a stent implant of one vessel and medication to date has returned my heart to normal size and the EF is 59%.  

However, your report indicates no ischemia so what has the doctor stated caused heart cell damage? Scar tissue would indicate necrotic heart cells....did you have a viral or bacteria infection?  Was your heart damaged from alcohol, drugs, medication?
