I am female, 19 years &7 months old, not married
I used to have high blood pressure months ago....maybe a year, but i didn't go to my doctor once I knew
Anyway, when I visited my primary care physician, he ordered a medication for two months and then discontinue, and ordered some diagnostic tests and blood investigation
One of them was echocardiogram, just for check up.. but I found that I have mild to moderate pulmonary hypertension (RVSP 42.57 mmHg)
Plus trivial leaking valves: (tricusped, mitral and pulmonary valve regurgitation)
I know it is still not dangerous yet, but I feel that no one helps me to know more
So, when I asked my doctor about it, he told me maybe the Dr of the echo had placed the probe on my chest in a wrong angle.. is that enough?
And finally asked to repeat it later
He didn't even ask me if I have any symptoms!! Because I have..but not that severity
Also I have problem that in the place I live it is not easy to go to or find a really GOOD doctor
So, what should I do?
Do I need to do more diagnostic procedure?
Do I need to follow up with cardiologist?
Thank you in advance!
