I am new here as of today!
I have quite a complex medical history as having Kawasaki disease AND Scarlett fever in childhood amongst other health complaints. However I’ll keep this short!
I have been referred back to a cardiologist as being on the beta blockers I am using have started to not work as efficiently as they did in the beginning and I have been having symptoms consistent with POTS. I have had another 24hr ECG (not yet reported) and a stress echo.
However I received a letter in ralation to my stress echo results, and it’s notes a ‘mild focal abnormality in apical lateral/apical anterior regions but with normal ventricular systolic function’. Leading me to need yet another cardiac MRI as there is suspicion of previous cardiomyopathy?
I have tried Googling, but I am getting no where in understanding what this means!
Just wondering whether anyone on this wonderful page has been told this before? And knows what this means?
Thanks very much all, and I hope you have a brilliant weekend!
Edit; The more I Google the more it tells me it’s early signs of heart failure 😅
