I had a check up with my regular Dr on wed. I have asthma and needed my inhalers refilled. Well she did all the normal breath deep listen to my chest stuff. Then she listened to my carotid artery and said "hm, what's going on there". She said it sounds like there could be a blockage and now I have to go have an ultrasound to check. I am freaking out. I am 28, I eat healthy for the most part, I exercised a lot most of my life. I feel like how the hell can I have a blockage in my artery?! I am really hoping it is nothing and she is just being cautious.

I made the stupid mistake of googling about it and now I have been sitting here worrying I am going to have a stroke or drop dead! That is totally overly dramatic lol.

Haha oh Gosh Dr. Google! I can't say anything though because I am known to do that with certain things. Just try to relax and not think too much about it. Just wait until your next appt

I'm sure it's just some fluke thing and they are being cautious, but man, how scary I hope you get good news when you have your follow up!

I hope your heart is fine. I was diagnosed with a murmur and then Mitral Valve Prolapse when I was in my late 20's. Hopefully it's nothing more than that!

Lol!! Thanks everyone! I did stop googling now. I found something that said the bruit (that's what she heard) can be innocent and is often found in young people with faster heart rates or extra blood flow. Well hello being pregnant gives you extra blood so I am hoping that is all that is going on in there!

Oh no, that is neverwracking. Yes, don't google anymore. I'm sure you will get good news after the u/s. It's nice the Dr did a thorough exam just to be sure all is well. Try not to stress too much yet. I assume if they thought it was that life threatening they would have sent you right over to the hosp, especially since youare pg.
