HI,I just got diagnosied with this condition last year. My mom, little brother and I all have it. My brother just turned 18 and he is also autistic and his heart is very bad as well and they were talking about giveing him a pacemaker in the future or if it got worse they were talking about maybe haveing to give him a heart transplant. I dont know where you live but in circleville, ohio there is a great cardiologist my mom and I both see and his name is doctor Lamb. He has us all on beta blockers and I still dont feel great but the medicine helps alot. I'm not sure what all medicines my brother is on but I could see if you want. They only found out about my condition because I had my son last year and it was to much stress on my heart and I almost died haveing him. I'm sorry your son has this condition and I see you've wrote this 4years ago but I hope hes ok and doing alot better.View Thread
