Hello! My name is***** to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with your reply momentarily.

How old are you ?

I'm 34. No known medical problems

I had ecg few months ago and showed up mild lvh but my echo was normal

Any anxiety ?


Customer: replied 1 year ago.
A little bit yes

Thanks for the information

It can be a pain due to nerve irritation

Second could be anxiety

A pain from stomach or acid peptic disease can also be the reason

It does not look like a heart disease to me

I've also got a bit of upper back pain too

So in that case a nerve impingement or trapped nerve must be ruled out


Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Does a trapped nerve go away on it's own

It depends upon the extent and that can be ascertained with an MRI


Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Can you tell me what's the normal thickness of lvh for a woman my age

Usually it is between 6-10 mm


Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Where on this does it state mine as I don't understand this

It is 1 cm on the top mentioned as IVSd


Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Oh rite it's cause it's went by cm in this. Is 1 cm normal
