Palpitations: can be an ominous sign of heart ischemia (low oxygen/blood supply to muscle) or arrhythmia; or due to more benign causes such as stress.

Does PVCs and leaky valve cause dizziness, gurgling feeling and sporadic heart rate?

Does PVCs and leaky valve cause dizziness, gurgling feeling and sporadic heart rate?

Possibly: A "leaky" heart valve can cause the symptoms you describe. It depends which heart valve and just how leaky it is. PVCs are extra heart beats that make your heart feel like it's irregular, but they don't cause dizziness or a gurgling feeling. PVCs can cause a sensation of fluttering or palpitations in the chest. An echocardiogram is the best test to look at leaky valves. Good luck! ...Read more

Is mvp and early repolarization of some concern I have it and symptoms include " pvcs , fast hr (190+ BPM rarely), dizziness, chest pressure.?

Is mvp and early repolarization of some concern I have it and symptoms include " pvcs , fast hr (190+ BPM rarely), dizziness, chest pressure.?

Possibly: Mvp alone is usually of little concern, but if there is leakage across the mitral valve it may be. A 25 yo can get hr up to 190 with extreme exertion, but this suggests a rhythm disorder such as pat. "early repolarization" on the ECG is often normal, but is associated with some increased heart risk. I think you should see a cardiologist. ...Read more
