Can mitral valve prolapse cause a person to get anxiety attacks?

Possibly. Http://www. Ncbi. Nlm. Nih. Gov/pubmed/3287421 there has been much written about the association between panic disorder and mitral valve prolapse, as above. While the association is small, in my practice I have seen patients who have mvp, panic disorder and both.
NO. These are 2 different problems. One is secondary to structural valve dysfunction (mitral valve prolapse), the other is a neurosis. For a neurosis you see your psychiatrist, for the valve prolapse you see your cardiologist.
Uh-uh. No. Anxiety attacks should be addressed directly. There's rarely an identifiable cause. Mvp, for sure, isn't one of them.
