I was diagnosed with MVP 6 years ago. At that time I was having racing heart, skipped beats, and severe anxiety and panic attacks. I had all of the tests done and all they came up with was MVP (thank God). Over the past 6 years my heart concerns have been minimized and my anxiety issues have diminished immensely, until recently. Last week I was sitting at work and I felt a drumroll in my heart and fainted. It came out of the blue. I was brought by ambulance to the ER and the EKG determined MVP. A follow up appt 2 days later including an additional EKG which determined the same. This last week I am frequently feeling skipped beats, dizziness, lump in throat, heartburn, hot and cold flashes, etc. I am currently taking lorazapam to alleviate an anxieties brought on by the symptoms. I was prescribed inderol if the atrial fibrilations get out of hand, but have not yet taken one.
My questions to you all are: What are your symptoms? Are you on meds? What lifestyle changes help? ....and any other info you can share.
Thanks in advance,
