So recently I was diagnosed with having a bicuspid aortic valve with mild thickening of the valve and a moderate leak. Apparently I’ve had it since birth - I only found out inadvertently as I went into the hospital for a check up for something totally different.
A bit of a shock to the system to be fair but having had the chance to digest the information and speak to the cardiologist I’ve been told that it’s at a very low stage at the moment. They’ll only want to see me for a yearly symptomatic appointment and a two yearly scan appointment.
My concern right now is I feel light headed. My head feels a little heavy. I can’t imagine it would be symptoms from the condition I have as I’m assuming it would take time for the symptoms to kick in. Has anybody else been experiencing this? Could it be something that’s viral as I know somebody else who’s suffering from it? Contacted my GP who’s suggested having my blood pressure checked for a week. So far the readings have been normal and nothing to worry about. I’ve also got blood tests (in 3 weeks time though).
Also, from time to time I suffer from breathlessness. It’s something that comes and goes and not something I have regularly.
Apologies in advance for the long post, I’m just a bit concerned that’s all. Any advice, help would be much appreciated. (Also, it don’t help using doctor google as you find out all sorts of information of which a lot is scare mongering so I just stick to this website now)
