I was born with a heart problem and was left with it as it was thought it was not worrying about.

Now I am nearly sixty five and my heart seems ok, I take my Statins and associated drugs and my heart is still ticking away so I understand without second opinion I am still alive

How did you find out about this problem I was told after a car accident when I was twenty six, this was confirmed by my parents and my old family GP who asked me w ould it have made any difference if I knew sooner, and I would have been more careful throughout my life. Could this be the same with you ??

At that time I was suprised to learn the number of people walking around with this type complaint was quite high, sometimes the medical profession would know about it and just tell the parents at birth and it was kept a secret to allow the child to get on with their lives as nothing needed to be done. Generally like my car accident they found out and told me, they did tests etc to put my mind at rest and that was it.

If you feel you need to know more ask the GP what He advises, although do not be suprised if He says do not worry

PUT YOUR MIND AT REST, see your GP.

Ah, I don't get heart palpitations too often. Only when I'm really anxious
