I am a Lyme forum regular and my daughter was just diagnosed with Lyme as well along with Mitral Valve Prolapse. She had an Echocardiogram to look at the extent of it today. I was in the room while they did the test and I have to say it freaked me out a bit. The valve was just all over the place and on the infrared blood was freely flowing between ventricles.
Can someone point to me a good website/information source that discusses this disorder in detail along with photos of normal and abnormal Echos?
My daughter has a lot of chest pains and palps and as any good mother would, I am really worried about her.
Thanks for all input!
