Re: leaking valve
Jada, I have moderate to severe regurgitaion in the aortic valve and mild to moderate regurgitaion in the other three valves. I was diagnosed after having shortness of bresth and dizziness as well. I was tried on a couple of meds that are to reduce the stress on the heart but I was taken off as I ran an extremely low blood pressure while taking them. I have had periodic followups with the cardiologist with routine echos and so far, I have had no worsening of my symptoms or the valve issues. So I think that once they discovered this, unless it progresses or symptoms worsen, it is not that big a deal for me. I know I was apprehensive at first, but after reading about valve problems, it is not that scary for me. Cleveland Clinic has a wonderful site that has lots of info on the subject. I try to think my heart is just overflowing with joy over my grandchild!
