Patent Ductus Arteriosus

October 27, 2019

This is a heart condition I was born with because of my 22q, a genetic disability that causes chronic health problems such as schizoaffective. I was born full term but I had a heart condition such as Patent Ductus Arteriosis that was discovered at birth. I also have schizophrenia since birth, or pediatric onset schizoaffective. Patent Ductus Arterios is does not just up and walk away. My heart is a perfectly normal heart these days, with nothing going on. My theory is that invisible, time traveling aliens healed my heart. It is the only theory that makes sense besides me spontaneously healing it.

PDA is about abnormal blood flow occurring between two of the major arteries. The ductus arteriosus is a blood vessel that connects two major arteries, the aorta and the pulmonary artery. The ductus arteriosus remained open in my body at birth, allowing oxygen-rich blood from the aorta to mix with the oxygen-poor blood from the pulmonary artery that puts a strain on the heart increasing blood pressure in the lung arteries. My last heart scans show that my blood flows the right way, my medical record says I have a normal heart. How is that even possible? I have no idea. I had a heart murmur which made them suspect. My mother took me to the cardiologist in Spain. Somehow my condition didn’t require surgery, or a catheter procedure and most likely, even medicine for that matter. All I need these days is antibiotics before dental work to prevent heart infections.
