36yo WM, 27 BMI, hx of HBP, hyperlipidemia, anxiety, MVP; all controlled w/ beta blocker, statin, clonazepam. Sedentary. Fear of MI; real risk?

36yo WM, 27 BMI, hx of HBP, hyperlipidemia, anxiety, MVP; all controlled w/ beta blocker, statin, clonazepam. Sedentary. Fear of MI; real risk?

Real risk: It is good that your blood pressure and lipids are controlled but you do have three risks for MI. Being male, hypertension and hyperlipidemia all put you at risk for MI. It is unlikely that you would have an MI at your age but there is still some risk. It is very important that you start an exercise program as advised by your doctor and get your weight to an optimal level. ...Read more

I have not seen my echo results but doc sent me a letter to say I have trivial mr. Does this mean I have mvp as well? My anxiety is really bad -help.

I have not seen my echo results but doc sent me a letter to say I have trivial mr. Does this mean I have mvp as well? My anxiety is really bad -help.

MR is not MVP: Mvp (mitral valve prolapse) can exist independently of mr (mitral regurgitation). Mr is a very common findings using modern echo equipment and most likely trivial mr is of no clinical significance. Mvp is somewhat overdiagnosed, but if he didn't mention it, it likely wasn't there. ...Read more

I have mvp and social anxiety. As you know Propranolol works pretty like a switch that when you stop it, anxiety gets back. Is it for rest of my life?

Anxiety Prognosis: Social anxiety is often a long term condition. If you have found a medication that works well, that is really fortunate--you can probably take it as long as you need it. Just make sure you meet with your prescriber as often as they recommend to monitor your condition. Talk therapy can help too. You are also young, and your brain is more "flexible"; you might outgrow this over time. ...Read more

I am waiting to undergo a laptroscopy surgery for my appendicitis.I am very sacred of this .I am already having mild mvp with mild regurg and  anxiety?

Do well.think well: The most likely scenario is that you are going to do well. If you are otherwise healthy. Think well and try to relax your body as you get ready for surgery. If you are in pain as for pain medicine. Most people who are relaxed before surgery then wake up after surgery with a better feeling. If you think about doing well then afterward you will. Hope this helps. ...Read more

I am 20 year old male with mild mvp wilth mild regurgitation ..I am having sob and chest pains. I already went several doctors..All are saying anxiety?

Symptoms of MVP: Mvp itself may be associated with some anxiety. You may have symptoms of fluttering of heart, chest pain occasionally, none of them considered to be serious. You can discuss with your cardiologist, a small dose of betablocker or calcium channel blocker may help in relieving your symptoms. ...Read more

Can anxiety and hand tremor be because of MVP-MR? I always take Citalopram 20+Propranolol 10. They can control my anxiety quite well. Is it ok?

Can anxiety and hand tremor be because of MVP-MR? I always take Citalopram 20+Propranolol 10. They can control my anxiety quite well. Is it ok?

Possibly: But to be sure I would recommend that you see a Neurologist about the hand tremor if you are not already seeing one. Typically tremor occurs only very rarely in MVP so it should be evaluated further. Your doctor would take a more detailed history about other causes, caffeine intake etc. Keep us posted. ...Read more

I was diagnosed with MVP and PVC's after having severe anxiety attacks. My cardiologist wasn't very helpful and told me, "it's not a big deal and to just get over it, that I would be fine." I'm still worried that my heart will just stop so I'm to scared

Mitral valve anxiety: While clinicians often diagnose the "mitral valve prolapse syndrome" with palpitations, anxiety, and other symptoms, in truth the association between the valve and the symptoms is not at all certain in most cases. If you truly have an abnormal mitral valve, as diagnosed by echo and interpreted by an expert, then a cardiologist can give you advice. In most cases no treatment is needed. ...Read more

I have mitral valve prolapse. How can I tell if my symptoms are due to anxiety?

I have mitral valve prolapse. How can I tell if my symptoms are due to anxiety?

See a cardiologist: Most people with mitral valve prolapse can have it very mild and can have no symptoms and are not at any significantly increased risk of heart problems. However, if there is significant prolapse and/or leakage of blood (mitral regurgitation), one can be at increased risk of shortness of breath, heart failure, chest pain, palpitations and arrhythmias. If you have these symptoms, see your doctor. ...Read more

Can mitral valve prolapse cause a person to have anxiety attacks?

Can mitral valve prolapse cause a person to have anxiety attacks?

Unlikely: This is a situation where two conditions that are very common (mitral valve prolapse and anxiety) may coexist in the same individual but is does not mean one caused the other. Some people with mvp may experience palpitations which could be unsettling and someone with anxiety may feel overwhelmed by having what they percieve as "something wrong with their heart". ...Read more

Hi sir, iam having mitral valve prolapse. I am also having anxiety and chest pains .Does i need to control my diet. Does I should avoid any foods ..

No special diet.: There is no particular diet you should follow. Eat healthy, but avoid stimulants if you find they make your condition worse. If they don't seem to bother you I do not see any particular reason to avoid them. Check with your doc to make sure this info does not conflic with their advice. ...Read more

I'm a very anxious person. Had panic disorder. Could the reason of anxiety be mitral valve prolapse? Could it get better with medication?

I'm a very anxious person. Had panic disorder. Could the reason of anxiety be mitral valve prolapse? Could it get better with medication?

Anxiety treatment: Anxiety and panic can easily go together, and some have also noted that mitral valve prolapse (mvp) and panic disorder can happen in the same patient. But that doesn't mean that mvp causes the panic. In most people, mvp causes no symptoms or physiological problems. Regardless, medications like ssri's can treat the anxiety & panic, along with psychotherapy. See your doctor for evaluation & help. ...Read more

MVP: For the majority of people, mitral valve prolapse is a variation of normal. There is a spectrum and some people have a more severe form. When present, this leads to mitral regurgitation (leakage), a loud murmur, and over many years can lead to heart failure-then the valve must be repaired. B vitamins with neither help nor harm you. Palps and anxiety are common and not related. ...Read more
