Is hypermobility syndrome related to heart valve?

Not exactly. There is limited evidence that heart valve problems are related to JHS, however, it is a well known feature of other conditions associated with hypermobility such as Marfan syndrome, Downs syndrome or possibly EDS type IV.
Yes. Joint hypermobility syndrome usually benign, but have seen several with concurrent jhs, panic attacks, ; a systolic murmur compatible with mitral valve prolapse (mpv, aka barlow's disease). Two of these patients confirmed that echocardiogram showed mvp. My speculation is that heart valves in jhs persons are prone to hyperflexibility. Jhs, mpv, ; panic attacks have association with #fibromylgia.

Can you die from hypermobility syndrome like people die of heart valve problems with marfan's?

Hypermobility. The term "hypermobility syndrome" is usually used to refer to persons who have excessive mobility of their joints (eg., can bend their thumbs all the way back to touch their forearm, etc.) while it may be associated with increased achiness, it does not do any serious harm. Marfan's disease is a specific genetic condition which features both hypermobility and a separate heart valve abnormality. Read more...

Hi my grandmas heart valve has closed 8 cm. She is ober 80.Does she need operation?

Need more info.

Her cardiologist (heart doctor) should be able to give a detailed explanation of the pros & cons of all options in her particular situation, so you can all decide together. Read more...

I'm 35 I was told but a Heart Dr that I have a leaky heart valve should I be worried?

Devil in the details. Depends entirely on which valve and how much leaking. Some leaking of the tricuspid and pulmonic valve is 100% normal. Mild leakage of the mitral valve is technically "abnormal" but nearly universal and harmless. Mild leakage of the aortic valve is abnormal but well tolerated. Severe leakage should be followed by your heart doc and treated if certain criteria are met. Read more...
