    I had a test that showed I have a PFO and I think it also showed left ventricle wall thickening. I can't find the test results now.

    I'm trying to find a doctor in the Los Angeles area who can do an impedence cardiography, but even if I get this test there doesn't seem to be a treatment.

    I'm sure this is the cause of my extreme fatigue. I've read some of Cheney's suggestions but most of what it seems we can do is just take suplements.

    Does anyone have any ideas? He recommends not getting the PFO closed. Thanks for any suggestoins!

    hopefully this will be a good year for us all!

    I just went to his Wellness site and will call them on Monday. Have you been to his clinic? Do you know if they take insurance?

    I wonder how many people on this site have PFO'S. I've read that in people who have this, coughing, sneezing or bearing down when going to the bathroom can open this hole in the heart and toxins can pass to the brain or lungs.

    Thanks for the info. Maybe he will have some information that can help.

    Best wishes and again, Happy New Year and much good health!
