I am a little confused on the aortic moderate to severe. Do you have a copy of the echo report, if not you need to obtain a copy of it. The minor mitral valve is not something to be concerned with. Was it the cardiologist that gave you all of these results & rx'd the BP med? If it were me, I would take the medication, you are on a small dose & should not have any issues. This is
I too come from the bad gene pool & have been on 3 BP meds since I was 28 & am now 64. My aortic valve (moderate regurg) has been an issue for a long time. A few years ago the mitral valve started leaking. I am still in the watch mode after all of these years. With some people they can have a murmur at a very young age & never have an issue. Worrying over what if & what caused it will do you no good. My murmur is heard loud & clear when they listen to my heart.

this can cause your BP to go through the roof. I would make a list of questions up & schedule another appt with the cardiologist & let him give you answers. I do suggest that you concentrate on the now things, not a murmur that was detected in your teens.
Let me know about
the echo report, it seems like some things are missing here. Take care.
