I have suspected for sometime that I am a carrier for DMD. My daughter was just confirmed to be a carrier which means I am also a carrier. She has been experiencing chest pain on occassion and I have thought about having baseline heart tests done on her. Do you think 15 years old is too soon to get baseline testing? I'm actually concerned about her because she is so tired all the time and she has so many complaints about feeling tired, having headaches and aches and pains everywhere. I have taken her to the doctor but they never find anything. She has several labs and the only abnormality was a CPK of 225....which led us to have the gene test.
I have already had an echocardiogram and ekg about 3-4 years ago. Everything was normal for me.
