Angry Anxiety and depression along with Mitral valve prolapse & regurgatation

I was having tightness in my chest and fluttering of my heart. It kept getting worse and I was found to have mitral valve prolapse with regurgatation. My anxiety has gotten worse. I dread going anywhere, I want to stay in bed most of the time I have shortness of breath and heart palpitations along with the feeling of dread and not wanting to be around people, not even family, the things I used to do I don't do anymore, cause I can't stand being around too many people. I get nervous when talking to people on the phone or in person. i get my words mixed up and I can't think straight. I want to know if anyone has the same heart valve condition and has experienced the same problems! I am desperate to know if these are any way related. It is like a viscious circle, my heart races and beats irregular and My chest tightens and I can't think, I was a very productive person before this, now I feel so inadequate. Please talk to me!!!

Re: Anxiety and depression along with Mitral valve prolapse & regurgatation

I feel ya Pamela...

I also have Mitral valve prolapse as well, along with some anxiety I've been getting shortness of breath, chest tightness, and fluttering of my heart as well. This had made me really anxious when I'm around alot of people, and occassionally when I am driving or by myself. I feel as if I can't get sufficient breaths when my chest tightens, and like you, it makes me nervous and mixed up. I also get chest pains, which I'm not sure if it's related to MVP.

Anyway, I know how you feel, and would also like to know if MVP and anxiety are related in some way? It seems like the more I noticed and focused on my heart pains, fluttering, breathing, etc., the worse my anxiety got.
