See a cardiologist: Aortic regurgitation results in stretching of the pumping chamber of the heart due to the increase blood volume and pressure. Patients often do not have symptoms until the muscle is stretched so far that it does not contract well. By that time, repair may not improve symptoms. It is important to have measurements of the heart size and aorta to know when valve replacement is needed.
