Discuss symptom Rx. I assume you have had a though work-up. If all else is benign, there is little to fear. The symptoms maybe from anxiety rather than the prolapse. Sometimes careful use of a beta-blocker can relieve symptoms related to anxiety, including the palpitations. See your doctor to discuss. Read more...
Anxious. Mitral valve prolapse is often associated with anxiety. First try the natural and self-directed ways to relieve anxiety-- (1) exercise; a brisk walk whenever you can; (2) progressive muscle relaxation exercises (you can find these on the internet); they work; (3) meditation, or even just sitting still in silence for 10-20 minutes at a time on a regular basis. Otherwise, you can see an md for med. Read more...
Some basics. MVP can be detected in as many as 10-15% of women by the time they are teens. If there is no leaky valve there is no extra strain on the heart or system. If you are looking for something to justify your panic this is really not worthy. You may want to find a life coach/therapist to teach you some more coping techniques so you can enjoy your life.

Can regurgitation start at anytime with mitral valve prolapse?

Yes. While the technical answer is yes, it's more complicated: mvp encompasses a broad range of severity from trivial/normal variant to very severe. Commonly there is some degree of regurgitation, often mild. The rare, severe forms of mvp can suddenly rupture a chordae (a supporting structure of the valve) and suddenly develop severe regurgitation with symptoms. This can happen anytime. Read more...
Yes. Many people with mitral valve prolapse have a small degree of regurgitation (leakage) which accounts for the characteristic heart murmur. The minority of patients may develop more severe regurgitation over the years. A small number of patients may require mitral valve repair or replacement. Read more...

Cannot Be Certain. Unfortunately, there is no specific answer to your questions. Mitral valve prolapse can progress. If the mitral regurgitaion (mr) remains mild, then there should be little-if-any impact on life span. However, if it progresses and leads to severe mr, there can be a serious impact to quality of life and life span. Follow-up is critical, so see a cardiologist regularly to answer your questions.
