newly diagnosed MVR and Scared !!!
I recently had a stress echo done due to some symptoms I have been having(Fatigue, chest pressure, nausea, palpatations, dizziness). I spoke to my Cardiologists nurse today and she told me that I have Mitral Valve prolapse with 1+ regurgitation. I am really scared because I had an echo done about two years ago and everything was fine then. I don't know alot about Mitral Valve prolapse or what the prognosis is for someone who has it. I am a 25 year old mother of three and am now very concerned about my health. Please any input about the disorder would be really appreciated! also I had 2 wisdom teeth pulled almost two weeks ago and did not no that I need pre-meds. Is this dangerous? If so should syptoms of problems already be evident since it has been almost two weeks? I am driving myself nuts! HELP!! Also I have noticed a funny feeling when my heart pumps, the only way I can describe it is like when you are down to the bottom of a glass when drinking through a straw, that kind of bubbly feeling only it seems to be going through my veins. It is worse when I lay on my left side and there is a definite clicking when my heart is beating. I also am having numbness in my left arm and the side of my face. Hsa anyone else out there been through this?
