I had a TIA in 1999 (mini-stroke). ECG have shown in the past that I have a weak left ventricle, but it wasn't really a worry. I've been in and out of hospital with palpitations, shortness of breath. Now, last week, I had another ECG and to my surprise, my left ventricle is even worse, the ejection fraction has gone down to 20% (normal 50-70%). Even more frightening than that is there is a large apical aneurysms on the heart. I'm going privately with cardiac care now because I've been lost through the public system before. There's talk of commencing Warfarin, yet again. Lots of other drugs to somehow reduce any further damage to the left ventricle. I'm heading for chronic heart failure, I'm only 43. The strange thing doctors have found, I have perfect functioning coronary arteries, right ventricle is normal too. Does anyone know of any similar stories or have something similar?
