This makes,me want to cry, I’ve been having symptoms since age 23. I used,to faint all,the time as a child. Every doc I saw said you’re too young to have heart problems. Nothing was done until I was 61 years old. I had a heart attack and an echo showed hcm. I am very short of breath and the docs give me pills and treat me like I’m mentally unstable. One doc,even countered me when I told him I was so short of breath by saying to me, you can’t be. I have been in the hospital,with chest pain and when I was supposed to,have a stress test, they said,they needed the bed for a man who,was being admitted, sent me home, did mine as an outpatient two weeks later. Said my elevated ST was normal.
zudemaster my mother was just diagnosed with this but hers is genetic. Her cardiologist says that my family should get tested just in case. The doctor also said that it's important to stay hydrated and to avoid diuretics. If I were you, I would do more research and ask more questions.
I'm impressed with Dr Lever's attitude. My former cardio doctor wouldn't even consider that my HCM wasn't genetic and refused to support my claim against the military who unceremoniously discharged me after I began having symptoms. When I start passing out again I'll be asking for a referral to the Cleveland Clinic.
The class of drugs that Levitra, Viagra, Stendra, and Cialis belong to are called PDE5 inhibitors. They work by relaxing tight blood vessels, allowing more blood to surge into the penis and cause an erection, says Gregory Bales, M.D., an associate professor of urology at the University of Chicago.
The little pills do the trick for more than two-thirds of men with Viagra protects the heart (ED). They also work for guys who simply need them for a short time to get their “confidence back,” says Michael Eisenberg, M.D., director of male reproductive medicine and surgery at Stanford University.
