My name is Nicole, I am 34 and have been with ivillage for years but don't have time to be here as much as I want to.I have a question and a concern kinda tied into one so if anyone has any ideas, please respond. Thank you.
Has anyone heard of this kind of test? I'm having the second part of this test done tomorrow morning and should have my results in about 2-3wks. I had an Echo done earlier in the month and apparently the results weren't good. I have noticed something really weird and I'm not sure why it happens. I suffer from EXTREME fatigue and I JUST noticed tonight that all of a sudden, once I ate dinner, I was more awake. And I have no answer for this.
I believe that part of the reason why I have been so fatigued is partly of my obstructive sleep apnea but also because the blood flow to my heart is either blocked or my heart has become really weak. I have Mitral Valve Prolapse already so we know that my heart already doesn't get all the oxygen rich blood it needs, so the question is...what next?
