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 moreSee 2 more doctor answers

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.

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

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
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer

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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer

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 moreSee 2 more doctor answers

I've noticed yesterday that i've mitral valve prolapse. Can it cause heart palpitation and anxiety? Are b complex injections derogatoty for it?
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
