I don't know who to talk too and I wish I had somebody that understood in my life. I'm going to vent a little here and hope it helps. I'm just so tired about being tire. It's not the dissection that is keeping me down but this stupid leaky aortic valve. I'm exhausted all the time, I can't even walk from one room to another without running out of breath. My heart feels like it's in overdrive whenever I'm doing anything active at all(including just standing up) I'm dizzy all day long and at times feel like I"m going to pass out. I get these stupid chest pains which always make me stop and pay attention to see if they are the normal pains that I get due to the leaky valve or something new and different. I do have an appointment to get another echo in about a month....but I'm thinking I need to call and get in sooner, call it a feeling I guess. OK vent over....thanks for letting me rant a little.
