Hi Erica. I am a healthy 27 year old and was just diagnosed today with both aortic valve
insufficiency and mitral valve prolapse. I came to search the net for info and felt comforted to
know that there is a forum we can utilize to share info and concerns. Unfortunately I do not
have any helpful info and could actually stand to hear what others know. I have been a runner
for 12 years and am now running better than ever. Now I am concerned that the mere knowledge
of these problems will cause me to be afraid to run to the point of exhaustion. Any info anyone
has would be helpful, as I feel as if my body is betraying me and I don't know what I can do to
help it.
Thanks!
-Colleen


: Does any one on this message board suffer from this condition? I was diagnosed several years back, and now also have mitral valve problems.
: As of yet I am only faced with 1 once yearly visits to my pediatric cardiologist. For echocardiograph, electro cardiograph, and stress testing. In the near to distant fufture I will face repairment surgery for these problems but am wondering if any one has any information.
: I am an active 17 year old teen, who loves children,
: rollerblading, and many other activities.
: Thanks.

: Erica
