I posted a few wks ago (it took me 2.5ys to get my first Q to post, now 2 in 3 wks, so no more posts from me) and got a reply in which you suggested that I may have diastolic dysfunction causing some of my symptoms. This has not been suggested as a possibility. I am wondering if you have a name or two for me to consider getting a second opinion at CC in the next mth or two? We are in Colorado.
My health profile key points are: borderline high cholesterol which is new, HTN, asthma, strong family hx of heart disease, dx of cardiomyopathy in 2005/06 (current EF normal at 53%), hx of PE (2006) and open dx of inclusion body or polymyositis per clinical picture, MRIs, bloodwork and lung function results through 2006, showing poor muscle function. Recovered corticoadrenal insufficiency, Protein S deficiency, residual mitral valve regurgitation and some atrial enlargement. I am 43yo female, normal weight, normal BMI. Last Echo in 2007, nothing ordered by new cardiologist who I was assigned too after mine left the area.
Once again, thank you in advance, sorry to bug you again. I sound like a health disaster but I chase three kids 2 thru 8yo on a daily basis and do pretty well all things considered :-).
