Question Mild Tricuspid Regurgitation

I am male 41, recently had echo with "Mild Tricuspid Regurgitation".
Is this normal or anything to worry about. I have been having dull chest pains on and off for about 2 weeks. I suffer from Anxiety. Would this cause PVC's etc.

Please only reply if you have had some experience with this as far as what the cardio has told you!

Thanks so much!

Re: Mild Tricuspid Regurgitation

skorpion.. I am well now 28 was diagnosed with mild tricuspid regurg last year, as well as trace prolapse and regurg with all of my other valves. My cardiologist X 2 have told me that it is nothing to worry about, that I dont need to take any medications for it. The only thing I need to do is take prophylactic antibiotics when I have things such as dental work done. I do have atrial tachycardia, SVT, sinus tachycardia that is very poorly controlled but they do not feel that they are all related to mild regurg. I doubt highly that this is the cause of your PVC's. Hope that helps ya.

Re: Mild Tricuspid Regurgitation

Hey Josell,
Haven't seen you on AIM? Hope your ok. I have mild triscupid regurgitation, along with another one (can't remember what it's called) and also mild mvp. My Dr.'s are not concerned at all, I don't have to take antibiotics for mine, and they also don't feel it contributes to the pvcs. Hope to talk to you soon. BTW, happy birthday! Michelle
