coronary artherosclerosis/heart disease

28 year old female-just diagnosed yesterday with coronary artherosclerosis but the full description says Chronic Ischemic Heart Disease-Coronary Atherosclerosis...anyone else out there have this disease? i'm scared out of my mind and have to wait till tuesday for my consulatation to talk about some angiocardiography(?) procedure...any information you have to share would be greatly appreciated!

oh i also was diagnosed with Mitral Valve Prolapse & Regurgitation when I was 12 but have never had an issue from it...does anyone know if MVP/Regurg can worsen over time to cause the disease i have now?

thanks so much!
