Doctors Are Wrong!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!?

please tell me what you think???????????

(i have Pulmonary Stenosis)
The pulmonary valve opens to let blood flow from the right ventricle to the lungs. Narrowing of the pulmonary valve (valvar pulmonary stenosis) causes the right ventricle to pump harder to get blood past the blockage. If the stenosis is severe, especially in babies, some cyanosis (blueness) may occur. Older children usually have no symptoms.

Treatment is needed when the pressure in the right ventricle is high (even though there may be no symptoms). In most children the obstruction can be relieved during cardiac catheterization by balloon valvuloplasty. In this procedure, a special catheter containing a balloon is placed across the pulmonary valve. The balloon is inflated and the valve is stretched open. In other patients surgery may be needed. During surgery the valve can usually be opened so that it works well again.

The outlook after balloon valvuloplasty or surgery is favorable. Still, follow-up is needed to find out if the heart works normal

Mitrial Valve Prolapse??? Yeah I think you need to take yourself to a different doc! No claim of chest pains is ever to be ignored, regardless fo what a doctor or nurse may think, it MUST be treated and monitored with a sense of urgency! But I do under stand that with MVP you do from time to time have chest pain, so it COULD be normal, but I definitally would not the chance!

You are completely right in thinking that your doctor was wrong! I would start looking for a better doctor! Good luck dear!

Your doctor should know more than you do. If you don't trust him, get a second opinion from another doctor. How can anyone of us out here tell?

You have two choices as I see it. One, believe your doctor. Two, get a new doctor. As a person with Arterial Afibulation and Panic and Anxiety Attacks, I can tell you that chest pains can come in all shapes and sizes. Last week my youngest daughter (25 years old) slipped and fell down. No pain and no bruises. The next day she thought she was having a heart attack. She went to the emergency room, they did every test in the book to discover she had a bruised chest bone and 2 bruised ribs.

From my experience if you don't feel comfortable with the diagnosis.You have to listen to your body.If you know something isn't right get a second opinion. I have been misdiagnosed a few times. Sometimes you may need to see several doctors .

I am a heart patien with micro prolaps
leaky valvue

I know when I get up set or stressed out I get pain in my chest.
So just may be you may be causeing your own pain by stressing your self out by un-necessary worring about what may or may not happen.
in most case as mine and your it can safely handled by medication.
Relax and go with the flow and know your limitations.

There are alot of things that can cause chest pain. Your doctor did an EKG, which can show irregular beats, irregular "electrical" activity of the heart, and also if there was a heart attack in the past, or current ischemic changes (meaning your heart is starving for oxygen/heart attack). If you "know" something is wrong, then I suggest you getting a second opinion. Alot of things can cause chest pain though, including muscle strains, acid reflux, heartburn, plurisy (usually harmless inflammation around your lung) anxiety, pneumonia.....I could go on and on. Try not to jump to the conclusion that it is something serious, and look for a different cardiologist who can give you another opinion.

Have you been following up with a Cardiologist or was the Doc your PCP ( Primary Care Physician)?? Basically, you have some choices. Either get a second opinion or contact your Doc and let him/her know that you are still having chest pains. Are you experiencing more stress than usual ?? Any shortness of breath ? Any symptoms of a heart attack ?? I ask these questions so that you can think about if you are having any of these symptoms. The chest pains can be related to other causes as well. Anxiety or panic disorder. Perhaps your Doc can prescribed you a mild tranquilizer and see if this helps. You mentioned a surgical procedure. It seems as though this is something you would like to have. But, are you a candidate for such a procedure? You should discuss this your Doc or a Cardiologist . I hope that this helped some and Good Luck.

Not, necessarily, it could be anxiety, which will give you symptoms.

Could be your chest muscles, not your actual heart. Caused by stress.

doctors can be wrong.. you could always see another doctor..

1) Do you really have valve problems? I mean, a real diagnosis of valve prolapse or something of that nature?

2) Chest pains near the heart could also be an intercostal inflammation. You have been hit in the chest and the cartilage has been traumatized, causing these pains

Chest pains are real, but related to so many things. Sounds like you have a lot of tension and stress. I bet it is probably related to that and anxiety. = This may or may not be anything serious. You should go with your doctors advise. They will investigate as much as needed for your symptoms and medical history.

~I think that you have two options:

1. Get a second opinion

2. Since you "now" that something is wrong, compare your medical degree with your doctor's degree and tell him what your diagnosis is. Then, if you think it's needed, order some more tests for yourself and write your own prescription.

(And they wonder why doctors get cranky.)

Your heart is not the only thing in your chest.
There are lungs, ribs, cartilage, blood vessels, connective tissues, breasts, and all sorts of non-heart related goodies.
Just because you have chest pains does not mean something is wrong with your heart.

You need to COMMUNICATE. Why not ask, "well, what do you think might be causing these pains, if you don't think it is due to my heart?" And also "what further tests do you think I might need?" If your doctor cannot communicate well with you, you may prefer a different doctor. I'm sure your doctor is basically just interested in making sure there is nothing life threatening going on. Unfortunately, if he/she doesn't find anything really life threatening, then they just tend to neglect to discuss other causes.

Not all chest pain is the heart. there are many reasons for chest pain that have nothing to do with the heart. Cotrochondritis is common id childtren and young adults and often causes them to be concerned about heart problems. See first website below. if you acontinue to have the problem or are still worried, you could consuolt a different doctor. you need to write down you questions aond symptoms. Ask the doctor to explain to you very clearly what he/she does or does nto think the problem is so you understand clearly.
