Got Echocardiogram done due to a heart murmur. Echo shows Mild MVP w/ Trace regurgitation, EF 67%, no symptoms. HELP! Is this really bad? PCP says its common in young thin women. Just need yearly echo to follow up. Can I still drink coffee?

In brief: Yes and its not bad

The doctor is correct this is common, very common to find MVP and trace regard, What it means is what you heart contracts the mitral valve leafs kind of bend backwards and open a little allowing a small amount of blood to flow backwards.
Some patients feel palpitations, or have irregular heart bats that when worked up we find the MVP. You can drink coffee just in moderation
