A member asked:

What are you eating?: Sometimes people can have palpitations after eating sugary foods or a lot of carbs. It is also possible to get palpitations from MSG which is in a lot of Chinese food and evening some Italian food. It could also be caffeine or alcohol. Keep track of what you are doing before the palpitations happen.

Probably not: MVP can be associated with chest pain and palpitations but shouldn’t cause shortness of breath unless the valve is leaking a lot. You should see a cardiologist and have an echo to find out how bad the valve is.

For the most part no: For the most part, you can participate in competitive sports but I wouldn’t recommend lifting heavy weights that cause you to strain excessively. There is a small risk of damaging the chords that support the valve which could make it leak significantly.
