Hi! I was diagnosed with MVPS 3 years ago... I just would like to know if MVPS can be a cause of depression... because these past tree years i am usually depressed... usually on my studies... that's when i stop going to school and just give up.. i just don't have the interest to study anymore... my parents were not happy with my decision.. they keep asking me why... and i just can't find the answer to their question... i don't know how to tell them what i feel... and always seem afraid of telling them... i have a ton of friends, but also can't get myself to tell them either.... i don't know if these are effect of MVPS or an effect of knowing i have MVPS? Help pls.. i really am confused....>.<

Talk with your DR about what your feeling he may have some info regarding depression and MVPS. Communication with your parents would probably help as well. Also, I believe I heard that some Medications can possibly cause depression symptoms. All in all I would first talk truthfully to your parents and then get a medical checkup from your DR to make sure everything is ok. Good Luck and God Bless!

Hi Ra-rai,
I'm so sorry to hear about your problems with depression. I totally agree with D-Man, that you should seek help for it right away. I'm sure your parents would be supportive of you finding a way to regain your equilibrium and regain a positive and energetic attitude.

I'm not a regular member of this forum (I am more regularly on the GERD forum, and visit the Allergy/Asthma forum every so often), but am trying to help out a moderator on our forum who has a family emergency.

I wouldn't attempt to respond to every post here, but I also have mitral valve prolapse, and understand how scary that can be. Fortunately, I never experienced depression as a result, but until I was diagnosed, I suffered from a great deal of anxiety.

I quickly searched MVPS online and found the following link that addresses depression:
You may have already seen it, but I thought if you hadn't you might find it helpful.

Good luck, and please seek help, so you can get back into a happy and positive mood.
Take care,
