Food Regurgitation On Lying Down
Aortic Regurgitation - When are pounding/forceful heartbeats felt? During strenous activity? Lying down? Routine activity? Sitting? Are they constant?
Aortic valve leak: If severe aortic valve regurgitation is present, it will often cause widening of the pulse pressure; the difference between the systolic (top) and diastolic (bottom) blood pressure values will increase.
