Mvp Heart Conditions
I'm 21 years old, I'm diagnosed with mild MVP with mild regurgitation. Does these heart conditions r formed now?
Heart disease is a condition in which a person has problems within his or her vascular system and heart, which includes both congenital birth defects and problems acquired later. Examples of heart disease include clogging (atherosclerosis) of the coronary (heart) arteries, heart attacks (obstructions of the arteries), damaged heart valves, heart muscle failure, and viral infections of the heart. Some major causes of heart disease include genetics, smoking, hypertension, high ...Read more
Is it ok to take Celexa (citalopram) if I have mitral valve prolapse & occasionally experience arrythmias - leaflet states to be cautious with heart conditions?
Yes: Celexa (citalopram) can cause a prolonged QT interval. If a person has a long QT interval already when he or she starts taking Celexa (citalopram), it could cause a dangerous heart rhythm problem. However, Mitral Valve Prolapse does not cause QT interval prolongation, so generally, MVP is not a reason to avoid Celexa (citalopram). Hope this helps.

Variable: Mvp can lead to mitral regurgitation and this causes a murmur. Symptoms are variable, depending on the severity. Mvp most commonly is asymptomatic but sometimes causes palpitations. If you are having any symptoms, you should have an echocardiogram to evaluate the valve and severity. ...Read more

I've very mild mvp. Once in a while, i'll get pulls and tugs on d left side of my chest near d heart. It will sometimes last a few hours. Is there cause for concern? Wat wld usually cause these tugs? They come on suddenly
Not likely from MVP: The symptoms your describing are not likely to come from your mild mvp; most likely muscle spasm (intercostal--muscles in-between your ribs). If you are physically fit/active and able to exercise w/o difficulty, then it is even more reassuring that it is not heart related. Good, deep breathing exercises, stretching/chin-up type of activities may help. If persistent, consult doc. Good luck. ...Read more
Mitral valve prolapse is when the mitral valve that separates the heart's left atrium and left ventricle does not close appropriately. When the heart contracts to push blood from the left ventricle to the rest of the body, portions of the mitral valve move backwards into the left atrium. This can cause regurgitation of blood from the left ventricle into the left atrium. Most of the time a mitral valve prolapse is asymptomatic and does ...Read more
