Follow up question Extreme fatigue after ablation
Sometimes the cardiac echo misses a pleural effusion, simply by not "looking" into the R or L chest. Since your heart function is normal at rest, sometimes a stress echo is necessary to detect a small localized fluid collection that only interferes with your heart function during exercise.
Thus, make sure there is no pleural effusion with another (stress) echo. If these are also normal, your fatigue is probably not related to your heart,
Hope this helps,
