I am a female,47yrs.old. I had a mild heart attack at 40. upon catherization all that was shown was a wall motion abnormality but mild,and left ventriculogram shows normal function with mild hypokensis of the diaphragmatic wall. left ventricular motion abnormality,inferior/posterior hypokensis,mild,w/ normal ejection fraction.mitral insufficiency,mild.Since then I have been admitted several times into I.C.U. for a couple days because of mild levels of troponin in my blood tests. I was diagnosed with Prinzmetal Angina. I am currently on metoprolol 50mg twice daily and an aspirin. The meds. cause palpitations. My heart beats rythmic,but very hard sometimes. I have just been under my physicians care since my heart attack and have not seen a heart specialist.I also have a problem with adema around my eyes and from my knees to my ankles. I feel like I retain fluids everywhere but can actually push in the skin on my legs and it stays. I have been told troponin in blood only shows if there has been heart damage,yet when I ask my Dr. about it he says not to worry. I do not want to be taking meds. if I do not need them.Yet I have had on several occasions low levels of troponin in my blood. Is this doing damage to my heart? Should I see a specialist? The meds. have controlled the hard heartbeat,but cause the palpitations. At a loss and really concerned.
