Re: Anyone with heart valve problems?
Jack, I've had regurgitation in all four of my heart values, for many years, the worst being my tricuspid valve. I have never had any symptons that I can relate to my heart valve problems, possibly due to other, more serious damage to my heart. Perhaps if I only had the valve disease, I would be more able to detect the symptoms.

I'm convinced I have one, although my echocardiogram test I took a couple months ago came back "fine".
It takes significant education and training to properly read and diagnose an echo, however, regurgitation sticks out on an echo like a sore thumb, and also can be detected thru a stethoscope.
Were any of the readings from your echo below or above normal ranges? What did your echo report say about your valves? Were there any entries regarding regurgitation? Any entries on your echo summary report that caught your attention?
