General info: Without an actual examination, I cannot give specific medical advice on your particular health
and... the rare cases of sudden death due to heart causes:
Hypertrophic heart... big heart on echo/ekg
abnormal wiring...easily seen on ekg
These are far rarer than car accident deaths and slightly more common than lightning and elevators.BUT
tests make it LESS likely than that.
