Hi everyone,anyone else got the same as me? I have a bicuspid aortic valve,which I was told yesterday after an echo and 24 hr holter. What does that mean? 985 of people in the Uk have 3 flaps in their aortic valve,'Tricuspid' and I have only 2. This means the 2 flaps works harder,especially with high blood pressure which I have had for a while now.
I also have Afib,again told yesterday.I thought it was just palpitations through stress, as we have had silly levels of that for 2 years in this house.
I am really freaked out as I lost my dear mum 18 months ago with heart failure, and a stroke after out of control Afib. and feeling a bit sorry for myself!
I have been given betablockers to. 'slow down heart rate' havent picked them up yet.How do people find these?
Are there any other rare birds out there?
