My daughter who is 22 has been healthy her entire life. A couple years ago, she started having palpitations,skipped beats. She went to the emergent room and the doctor said he heard a systolic murmur. He came back to listen to her heart again and couldn't hear any murmur. I took her to a cardiologist who said he might possibly hear something, but it was very faint. She had an echocardiogram done. The technician and the report said her mitral valve was normal. The doctor, who has been practicing cardiology for a long time, said he saw a very small prolapse with slightly thickened leaflets. How could the report say her heart is completely normal, and he says he saw a very small prolapse? She has been checked by other doctors since then. She had an exercise test and a holter monitor which were normal aside from a a few skipped beats. Over the summer she a physical and the doctor said she heard a heart murmur. She also went to the health center at school and they said they could hear a heart murmur but that it was probably benign since the echocardiogram said her valves were all normal. Do you think she has mvp? No one in our family has a history.
