Hi, my boyfriend who is 29 years old has just today seen a specialist regarding the possibility of testing for Chrones disease. However the specialist picked up on something that his doctor whom he saw a couple weeks back, did not. When the specialist asked of any specific ailments, he mentioned how he has been having chest pains, but said he went to the doctor and the doctor dismissed it as a "pulled muscle". I've refused to believe this since hearing that diagnosis, but I'm no doctor, so I basically shut up about it. However today when he mentioned to the endocrinologist specialist-the doctor immediately took a listen of his heart-and immediately suggested booking him in for a heart echo after believing he may have a mitral valve prolapse. Normally I would be riding my high and mighty horse saying "I was right" and stuff to my boyfriend, but not this- more like I want to take a sledge hammer to the dickhead doctors Saab or whatever $200,000 car he drives who misdiagnosed my boyfriend with such a pretty bloody important heart condition. So, we have scheduled an Echo to test for sure but yeah I'd like to hear of anyone's stories regarding this condition- symptoms before and after finding out that you have this heart condition, how it has impaired your life at all, any surgical stories...anything-preferably tho stories from males aged 25-35 years old. Thank you!!

      I refused to believe what the first doctor diagnosed it as a pulled muscle, I'm just kinda p*ssed off that after a doctor listened to his heart(I asked and yep, the doc did have a listen but didn't mention a thing about his heart) misdiagnoses an obvious irregularity in the beating...this "quack" should be exposed, next time it will be something way more serious
