My son (ages nearly 4) has a complete heart block and is due to be paced within the next few weeks.
I'm slightly concerned about the consultant though for a couple of reasons. 1: He has been diagnosed as having a heart murmur by other doctors over the last few months, whereas his consultant stated in his latest examination that there was no murmur. Can murmurs come and go that quickly? I know they can come and go within a persons lifetime, but within such a short space of time?
Also, the cause of my sons heart block is unknown. I had a tick bite that was removed very carelessly just before getting pregnant with my son, and have never been tested for Lyme Disease. I know this can pass through the placenta, and can cause heart block. Having mentioned this to my consultant, I believe I have been fobbed off with the excuse that antibiotics wouldn't do any good at this stage, whereas all over the internet there are cases of antibiotics reversing the effects even after a pacemaker has been fitted!
Any advice is HEARTILY welcomed!
