Hello and welcome to JA. Dr Saleem here. Will be answering you shortly

Have you been told to have alcoholic cardiomyopathy? Its impossible to have alcoholic cardiomyopathy in absence of longterm alcohol consumption. However other forms of dilated cardiomyopathies can be confused for ACM . I would like to know if an echocardiogram was done and what the findings were
