CASA cardiomyopathy

Hello everyone,

I just done the initial medical assessment in Australia for my training. However, CASA picked up T wave inversion (Inferior T wave changes) on my ECG, and required me to see a cardiologist for an echocardiogram. The cardiologist conducted the echocardiogram and spotted all things were good except I have a trivial regurgitation in tricuspid valve and slightly dilated left ventricular size (but with normal systolic function). The cardiologist told me that I may due to the fact that I excersise alot (I go to the gym everyday for 1.5 - 2 hours lifting) and he referred me to a MRI scan which can confirm my condition.

I want to ask that have anyone suffered from anything like mine and got granted a medical class 1 as it really freaks me out! Thanks alot for helping!
