Later this month I have an appointment with a cardiologist for the first time. Whenever Ive raised concerns about a possible inherited condition Ive been told that I look perfect on paper despite having my blood pressure inexplicably shoot up a few years ago.
My younger brother unexpectedly passed away from a heart attack last month leaving me as the only one in my biological family who hasnt had a heart attack. He was only 43. The ME told my parents that if he had any siblings they need to be seen. This prompted my doctor to get me in with a cardiologist.
Im hoping against hope that Ive beaten the odds and do not have any major clogging. For a couple of weeks I felt like I was waiting to hear a verdict; either an acquittal or a death sentence. Your reference to that group intrigues me.
