Can you tell me about normal EKG and mitral valve prolapse?

MVP. Mitral valve prolapse often has a normal electrocardiogram associated with it. When the MVP has significant mitral insufficiency associated, the ecg is usually not normal.

Can I have Mitral Valve Prolapse with a normal EKG, stress test, and with troponin I Ievel < 0.02?

Mitral valve prolaps. Hello ~ short answer YES. Prolapse of the anterior leaflet of mitral valve gives soft blowing systolic murmur over the mitral valve, often not associated with any pathology or leakage of the valve aka mitral regurg. Heres a link. First described by So African Cardiologist Barlow, aka Barlows Syndrome http://www. Mayoclinic. Org/diseases-conditions/mitral-valve-prolapse/basics/definition/con-2002474.
Yes. Mitral valve prolapse cannot be diagnosed with above tests will need echo to diagnose the prolaps see a Cardiology office to get appropriate study.

Stabbing pain in left forearm usually when rains? No injuries ekgs holster 6 months ago fine, (mitral valve prolapse) that's it. What could it be?

Cervical nerve. The arms are innervated by nerves which emerge from the neck (cervical nerves). If one of these is "pinched" either as it leaves the neck or traverses the apex of the lung, that can cause a sudden jolt of pain in the arm. Often such pain can be elicited by certain arm or neck motions.

My heart rate's been fluctuating quickly 80-170bpm for a week. Ekg and labs normal, mitral valve prolapse on echo. Burning in inner ears today. Ideas?

Do you have SVT? It you have supraventricular tachycardia diagnosed cilnically or on holter monitor, there are a variety of ways to approach it -- I used to have it (and mild prolapse on echo) and found that simply staying in really good aerobic shape worked better than meds, as the textbooks confirm. This is one for a good general physician or a caridologist.
Test rhythm problems. You almost certainly have rhythm problems probably atrial arrhythmias. You will need to see a cardiologist and have holter monitoring, which is usually attaching a recorder to you and storing all the rhythms for analysis later.

I have taken an echo, cchest xray and ECG one year before. In the echo iam having mil mitral valve prolapse with mild regurgitation. Ef 75%.This is ok?

Mitral valve. Prolapse may be a risk for endocarditis, strange rhythms and odd chest pain, the click murmur, so called barlow's syndrome. Ejection fraction 75% is normal..
Depends. Generally 55-75% ef is regarded as "normal". Mitral valve prolapse, "mild" mitral regurgitation and a high "normal" ejection fraction only provides part of the picture. Your overall heart function, amount of "leak", heart muscle thickness can all play a role and require your cardiologists interpretation. This may provide general information: http://goo. Gl/0u8gj.

Is there a difference between generalised anxiety disorder and mitral valve prolapse. I have had clear ecg/chest x rays but still getting symptoms!?

MVP/GAD. They are different. Gad is a psychiatric condition and mvp is cardiac. There is an association between panic disorder, a different anxiety disorder, and mvp. Some pts. With panic disorder also have mvp. Theories have proposed the surges of adrenaline with panic attacks may stretch the cords holding the mitral valve in place in the heart, causing prolapse into the ventricle.
Yes. Anxiety disorders are a spectrum of issues one of which is panic dosorder. People with anxiety frequently do not filter extraneous signals from the body and feel more. More pain, more GI symptoms, headaches. Often sleep is poor. These patients can also have chest pain. The ability to feel the prolapse, in other words, is linked to anxiety.
GAD, Mitral valvePro. Yes! Generalized Anxiety Disorder is Psychiatric whereas Mitral valve prolapse is a Heart condition. Most people with mitral valve prolapse have no symptoms. It has been associated with Anxiety, rapid heartbeat and dizziness. These can be symptoms of GAD.
