NO: Mitral prolapse without regurgitation is not a serious condition and should not deter you from any sports activity you wish to pursue.

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.

A 28-year-old member asked:

Should I be concerned if I feel like my heart is skipping beats in pregnancy?

Dr. David Fein
Specializes in Preventive Medicine
Yes: Most pregnant women are exceptionally healthy, and handle a pregnancy without difficulty. But, believe it or not, pregnancy can put a huge amount of stress on a heart over 9 months, so any cardiac symptoms should not be ignored. Skipped beats, extra beats, chest pain, or unexplained shortness of breath should be brought to the attention of your doctor.

Dr. Theodore Cole
Specializes in Family Medicine
Depends..: On how you approach it. Using symptoms, there are several categories of anxiety disorders. But, what causes anxiety? From this viewpoint, i would say the major types are those caused by stress/trauma, toxins, nutritional disruptions, allergies, and neurotransmitter imbalances. Therapy should be based on resolving the causes.

Yes: Anxiety can be caused from the release of adrenaline secondary to hypoglycemia. When sugar and artificial sweeteners are removed and small protein snacks are eaten every 2 hours and only protein is eaten at breakfast, many cases of anxiety resolve.

Inderal (propranolol): 20 mg. Is a low dose. Not sure how many times a day it is prescribed, but as long as you had no problems with your blood pressure, skipping one dose should be ok. Inform your doctor if any symptoms occur.
