Mild Aortic Regurgitation And Chest Pain
Could aortic regurgitation be causing the pounding feeling I get after exercise? Heart beats uncomfortably hard and can see heart beating off chest
Yes.: Aortic regurgitation (leaking of the aortic valve), if severe enough, can cause palpitations and prominent pulses as well as enlargement of the heart to the point where one can see the pulsations on the chest wall. The degree of aortic valve leaking can readily be seen on an echocardiogram. ...Read more

I am having mild mitral valve prolapse with mild regurgitation. I have shortness of breath and chest pain. I feel like iam going to die. Why is it so?
Doubt it's the heart: I don't think your symptoms can be caused by your heart given your description of the echo findings. There could be many other causes of your symptoms. One potential would be panic attacks. Often these give you the feeling you are dying. Check with your doctor for follow up. ...Read more

Pregnancy and delivery place unaccustomed stress on the heart, w/ markedly increased circulating blood volume. For your pregnancy & delivery you should absolutely receive care in a center with "high risk" obstetrics specialists and experts in congenital heart disease. Super important! Go now! ...Read more
Leakage: The aortic valve, when closed, prevents blood from rushing back into the left ventricle from which it has just been expelled by contraction of that chamber during systole. When there is some form of abnormality to the valve there may be leakage back into the left ventricle during diastole. Therefore, the blood is regurgitating back. ...Read more
Does mild aortic regurgitation get worse with BAV over time what's the chances of it remaining at its current state?
I had trace aortic regurgitation 2 years ago and the echo I recently took said its mild regurgitaion. Will this progress. Family history of marfans?
Aortic regurgitation: Minimal aortic regurgitation may not progress. Moderate or worse aortic regurgitation generally gradually results in progression of the problem over years. It is prudent to monitor the situation periodically to see if progression is happening. Echocardiography is very useful for this purpose. ...Read more
Hello, what does eccentric mean in mild eccentric aortic regurgitation? Is it any different from mild regurgitation.

Qualitative?: The aortic valve is the valve that connects the heart (left ventricle, a pumping chamber) with the aorta (the blood vessel that carries blood throughout the body. Aortic stenosis means that there is not free forward flow through the aortic valve, or in other words, there is obstruction. Aortic regurgitation means that there is back flow through the aortic valve from the aorta back to the heart. ...Read more

Is it normal to see your neck veins/ pulse pulsing slightly never feel it but see it in mirror close up have mild aortic regurgitation?
Carotid artery: If you are in an upright position, you are seeing the pulsation of your carotid artery since the jugular venous pulse would be below the level of your clavicle (and invisible) when you are sitting up or standing. It is normal to see the carotid, especially in thin and/or muscular people. You must be fit! AR does accentuate it as well. ...Read more
I was diagnosed with mitral regurgitation and enlarged left atrium, now lately I've been getting a lot of chest pain sometimes everyday. What could it be?
Get it checked out: Mitral regurgitation is when the mitral valve leaks blood back into the left atrium. This can definitely cause the left atrium to enlarge. However, this typically doesn't cause pain per se. Shortness of breath, funny heart rhythms, fatigue are all possible symptoms. Some, however, describe things differently. I recommend you get this checked into. Chest pain can also be something serious. ...Read more

It may be worthwhile to aggressively treat for GERD, including prescription anti-reflux medication. You also need an anti-reflux diet that your doctor or nutritionist can discuss w/ you. Other interventions, like not lying flat, are also important. See your doctor, or a GI doctor, to treat! ...Read more

Echocardiogram: An echocardiogram in the hands of a skilled cardiologist is probably best for detection of almost all cardiac valve disorders. Sometimes an echo done "internally" through a scope into the esophagus is needed, a trans-esophageal echo. In severe disease, a heart catheterization will often be done, usually if surgery is to be contemplated to repair a bad valve, but not just for detection. ...Read more
Aortic regurg & echo: Echocardiography (echo) is an ultrasound machine used to evaluate the heart including the valves. Doppler is part of the exam that includes both color flow and pulse wave. These help the md assess the degree of leaking of the valve based on various measurements. Usually rated as mild, moderate, or severe. Usually, only when severe does something need to be done. ...Read more
I've been told I have MVP and there are a few pixels of aortic regurgitation is this a normal finding or will it get worse?
