It may be nothing, but it also may.

I was a paramedic for eight years and have dealt with coronary difficulties in children, two of whom didn't live. Their parents didn't think it was anything either. Turned out one had cardiomyopathy, the other a congenital faulty heart valve.

I sure would go to all measures to rule any possibility out. But that's me.

Mom has examined me a lot. Sometimes we go to a family friend (Also a doctor) as a second opinion. I'll do that, Allison, because you're right, it might be something that my mother has just missed.

Pssh.I didn't pick up the wrong lead
It's called a counter canter...
...A very advanced maneuver.

Or not.
Look, I'm not trying to scare you. I just think, although it is probably nothing, it would be best to know for sure with tests, not just opinion

Did your mom or her friend run any tests?

I know just what you're talking about- my Dad was a doctor and we were never allowed to get sick. We were also checked over by "family friends" if we had complaints (Some of whom I would rather not have had touching me!). You should find your own GP (not a friend of your Mom) and look into this. Hopefully it's nothing but it doesn't hurt to check.
