3 years ago I had an upper GI and it was noted that I have a right sided aortic arch. My PA regarded it as something unusual but nothing to be concerned with.
Recently my (new) Doctor picked up a heart murmur, and would like me to come back in two or three weeks for a follow up. I remembered what this PA had said, but didn't tell the doctor because I wanted to make certain I was recalling correctly.
I called and retrieved my hospital records today and did confirm that I do indeed have a right sided aortic arch. I have no idea if this is why he's picking up a murmur, but I think I should give him this information anyways, maybe it would help?
I really don't want to go thru any more tests than I have to. Is there anyone out there who has experience with something like this? I'm really worried.
