Last month I wrote more information on research that has been done saying that people with CFS have Cardiomyopathy and that we have heart conditions that have been undetected. I have been very intrigued by these studies and I decided to take matters into my own hands to find out the truth. If there is a heart problem that we all have, I think we should seek help in finding the problem and resolving it.
I scheduled an appointment today for next Wednesday with a local cardiologist. I requested to be seen by my husband’s cardiologist, but he is not accepting new patients at this time. When I called and asked if I could set up an appointment on my own, or if I needed a referral, the receptionist wanted to know what I wanted to be seen for.
I told her about this theory that people with CFS have Idiopathic Cardiomyopathy and I wanted to find out if this was true and if the tests that I read about could be run (24-hour holter monitoring, etc.).
Who knows, this doctor may look at me like I have two heads or something but I think it is worth checking out. I have printed out the research material I found that was done by Dr. Cheney and Dr. Lerner and I am taking that along for her to look at.
I would be curious to know if any of my readers have ever been checked for this?
