When I was diagnosed 2 1/2 mths ago with Cardiomyopathy I was shocked. I had just turned 31 and am a healty, active person with no history of heart problems in my family. I had no symptoms and was only diagnosed because of a physical which indicated left bundle branch block. I was refered to a cardiologist who discovered that my left ventrical was dialated and my ejection fraction was only 35%. The cause of my damage is unknown (poss viral or sleep disorder). I began taking Coreg, Altace, and CoQ10. After 9 weeks of medication my ejection fraction is up to 50% and my heart is almost back to normal. When I was first diagnosed I searched the internet and only found discouraging information. I am posting this for other to know that many people do get better. I have emailed rebcooper (other posting on this forum) and she is doing great also. I pray for everyone who has heart disease. The power of God is unmatched and prayer and following medical advice can accomplish much. God Blee
