Dec 19, 2016 · Congestive Heart Failure in young people in Heart & Blood Health

Thank you for the kind words. My ex Maryann has a daughter from another marriage that had a heart attack at 30 but she survived. It seems coincidental but Maryann’s mother also died of a heart attack at age 65. She only knows one side of her family so you could be right in thinking it’s genetic. Could you tell me the type of test needed for her since my Heather has no DNA since she was cremated. Also what would the cost of the test be on average? Thank you again.

weakness, nausea, bloated up to waist, shortness of breath, pain in neck,. She had a kidney infection 2 weeks before and did not go to er till 2 days later. They gave her antibiotics which seemed to work. I suspect the kidney infection may have gone past the kidney to her heart. The staff at Tampa General weren’t sure if it was viral or bacterial version. The doctor that opened her heart to attach a VAD said there was significant old blood clots on the heart walls.

I would love to know how the infection got in her body. Was it a dormant virus or was it something she was exposed to? I need closure because I cannot lose someone dear to me without knowing why. I think she knew she was in bad shape because she was very smart and would have researched her symptoms online. There were just to many obstacles in her way and her thinking was clouded because she was taking ZANAX prescribed by a doctor who misdiagnosed her as having anxiety

My daughter, Heather, passed from Congestive Heart Failure at the age of 25. This was a total shock as she was very healthy and no examinations have ever revealed this possibility. She did have a kidney infection in Dec 2015 and went for diagnosis twice when she had the symptoms. Both times the doctors just passed it off as anxiety. She died in Feb 2015 at Tampa General. The surgeon tried to install VADs on both sides of her heart. When he came to us in the waiting room he said he never saw anything like the scars inside her heart.

I would like to know if anyone else has a story like this. We can only surmize that Heather must have had a dormant virus that was activated by something she took or was exposed to. I wished now we would have had an autopsy done but there may still be no way of finding out how she contracted this evil in her heart.
