I am getting fed up with my MVP. And my MD says that it has gotten worse. I have been under some stress lately and wammo. Pressure on my chest, hard to breath, headache for a week now, and dizzy and nauseated. And tingiling on my face, odd. I feel like someone heavy is sitting on me.
Question, what do I do about it? Do I go to the Mayo in Minn. And get the robotic surgery they brag about there? I want it fixed. It is getting worse, and I don't want to damage my heart anymore than it is. Plus two young kids to raise.
I am in great shape, can run and do a elliptical for 45 minutes. Working out doesn't bother me, but worry and stress hurts.

Good Morning,
I would suggest you gather all the info you can and then make an imformed consent based on the information you have.  If Mayo feels like the right choice for you then go there.
Have you had  cardiac catheterization and coronary angiogram to determine if surgery is warranted?
My sister had this however she was much older then you are, I am sure.
