Mirage's Story

I had to leave school in March of 2002 after having passed out a couple of times and having dizzy spells with some temporary loss of vision. At first, after an echocardiogram, we thought it was the result of a bicuspid aortic valve - as my blood pressure has been high, especially after activity. But, in Dec '02 we repeated the echo and found a tumour in the lower left ventricle which was removed a week later. And the surgeon says the valve is not tight enough to be causing the BP problems. So, I am now being tested for Cushing's and if the results come in positive, likely for Carney Complex as well.

Symptoms so far:
