Heart problems with CMT

Has anyone else been diagnosed with heart trouble with their cmt? I have been told I have a slightly enlarged heart. Just found out that Naproxin isn’t good for you if you have cmt and that can also cause heart trouble. I have been taking it for my shoulder after a bit of bone chipped off a few a few weeks ago.

Hi I was just recently told that I have an enlarged right ventricle. So I wonder if it has to do with the CMT.


I also have heart issues, including pacemaker. I am told that CMT is probably not a direct cause, but as a result of. IDK? Like you, I wonder?
