I was just diagnosed with ASD as well, and I'm 22. I was also surprised to find out I had this, and that no one caught it in my infancy. I found it because recently I have been having episodes of high blood pressure and heart rate at night. I have also had symptoms of being extremely fatigued and out of it. I am very healthy and was working out almost every day at the gym, but my doctor told me to quit exercising but to go about my daily activities. I am waiting on my TEE results to see if I need open heart surgery or just a catheter-placed patch. It is scary, but from what I understand if the hole's not too big, it's nothing to worry about. Mine is enlarged, probably because of all the working out I've done.
