Scared of getting hocm like my mom

I have tachycardia.. Some time my heart skips randomly and sometimes it skips when I take a deep breath.. I can't run very much or do something long before I get tired...I have history of high blood pressure and everytime I stand up wether I'm sitting or lying down I get extremely dizzy like vertigo and when i take breaths I feel like I don't get enough air so I have to try to take a really deep breathe to get enough... I don't want to have to put my bf through me having hypertrophic cardiomyopathy... He's scared I'm going to get it like my mom and I'm sure I will im the only one that has heart problems out of 3..

Re: Scared of getting hocm like my mom

The only thing you can do is see a Cardio and get a full run of tests done.

Blood, ECG, Echo, Holter Monitor. I just completed all of them. I have some harmless premature and ectopic beats. Echo showed all valves working and heart in structural order.

I was freaking out and stressed as hell for 2 months waiting on all of this to be done. Made all my beat and energy levels look like crap.

I am told I will live and am fine to continue life as normal.

Get yourself checked out and don't stress while doing it

Re: Scared of getting hocm like my mom

I would suggest find yourself a new Cardio. Unless you feel the last one you saw was doing a good enough job.

3 years ago is a while now, I would suggest time for another check up at least.
