I'll try to make this as brief as possible.
I saw a few articles that stated being born premature could lead to heart problems (among others) later in life. Specifically, the structure of the heart MIGHT be abnormal (seems like mainly the ventricles).
Other than being premature, I've had good health all my life. For a while, my blood pressure was slightly high - into the 130s - but diet/exercise/caffeine reduction has it to normal range. I don't have any of the complications I've heard that can be carried into adult life (my vision, height/weight, cognitive abilities, lung function, etc have always been great). As it turns out, I also had quite the cardio work up after a spell of anxiety/anxiety attacks (which definitely runs in my family). I had ekgs, blood work, event monitor, a full physical from a great cardiologist and an exercise stress test. Everything checked out. In fact, in the cardiologists' words, I passed everything with flying colors.
So here's my question.. Could I have something wrong with my heart after all of the tests? And how likely would some heart issue be for an adult prematurely? The articles I read we're very vague on numbers, they only said it might be another risk factor for heart disease.
I don't think I'm in any immediate danger (especially with the stress test). But I want to know if I should be following up with the cardiologist or perhaps another Dr. about future concerns.
Thank you in advance for any input.
