what do u think doc?

That's in the area of your TMJ joint and maybe just a little inflammation there but definitely not an aneurysm

As for your dad--it was deemed borderline cardiomyopathy so basically it isn't anything that needs a workup

Ok doc nothing to worry about .. neither him or me

Is cardiomegaly same as cardiomyopathy ?

I forgot--did it say cardiomegaly?

Ask Your Own Health Question

My bad--that's what I meant above

No you really can't diagnose cardiomyopathy by x-ray but his is a mild heart enlargement (cardiomegaly) at most

And the report really didn't confirm it was cardiomegaly

Hope ur well .. going to sleep in abit so quick question .. earlier today I was walking and I felt a quick sharp pain in my left calf.. it disappeared straight away but left a dull pain in the calf .. it disappeared after about an hour, was that just a muscle strain? No way dvt? Anyway just got back from the gym and I had no pain in the calf while running

No way it was a DVT

Perfectly safe

Slight pain in the right pec muscle as i ran.. is that because the pec muscles move up and down while running? That side wouldn't be cardiac?

Absolutely not cardiac

Not DVT and not PE

Thanks... so if it was dvt or PE then I would have had worse symptoms by now?

Absolutely

Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
I saw the gp today she said there's nothing about me that is saying to her that I have a dvt or PE... I asked her about the d dimer test , she said I could have it if I want, but then I told her that my d dimer always comes back slightly elevated ... that's when she said in that case it wouldn't be advisable because if it did come back elevated then she will have to put me on meds until a clot is ruled out or confirmed .. she said this would just cause unnecessary anxiety

Is this a new doctor that doesn't know your history?

Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
she has only been there a couple of months .. my regular gp would not even have entertained the idea of me getting a d dimer done .. it would have been a straight NO lol
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
Why do u ask that?

Because of what she said--she must not be familiar with your history

Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
Ah I see... ok if I had gone and u were the gp then what wud u have said?

Absolutely no need to check the D dimers

Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
That's reassuring
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
I've just got back from the gym .. I did an hour of weights and 20 mins of walking/running .. didn't feel anymore out of breath than I would normally with running .. if there was a PE then I'd find it very very difficult to run? Am I understanding this correctly?

Yes it would but you should have let go of the whole DVT/PE brouhaha long ago

Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
I know .. I can't unless I fully understand the facts .. also my pulse would be high? My oxygen sats wouldn't be at 98% ? .. but bot***** *****ne is that I don't have a dvt or PE? That correct?

High pulse and low O2 sat

But you don't have a DVT nor a PE and you have to stop considering every minor leg ache or chest ache as meaning something serious

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
