Scared and don't know what to do?
I am 25 years old, and I have been complaining of my heart hurting for at least the last 6 months. I have sharp pains in my cheast, lighthaeded, dizzy shortness of breath (when I even walk up the stairs) and a heart murmmer. My cousin 29 years old has been just diagnoised with pumlinary hypertension. My aunt died from it along with my great aunt and my second cousin. A heart and lung diesase (a zero survival rate) and I'm showing all of the early symptoms of it. I am so scared and not ready at all to leave my 3 year old daugther. My doctor thinks that I am a hypocondriact and won't do tests to see if I have this diesase or not. So my question is what do I do about this? How do I go about getting a second opionin or do I end up in the hospital again before I can get tested? Thanks for taking your time out to read this. SL (sorry about the spelling)
