I have a heart condition
The muscles on the top inside wall of my heart don't close properly. This causes an arrythmia from time to time and get tired very easily. This is a condition I had since birth. I also have to take antibiotics before going to the dentist. That is basically all I know!

I firstly want to know what would the name of the condition be. I would also like to know what are the problems I will encounter in my life.

Mara, it sounds like it might be Barlow’s syndrome, but I can’t say for sure. The easiest would be to phone your doctor, get the name and to let me know so that I can give you the information you’re after. Good luck.
