Yes, this is a valvular heart disease. It's severity varies from patient to patient & so does the symptoms & prognosis.
Hope you have been seen by a cardiologist to evaluate your heart function & to find out any treatment you may need.
Having metformin use & you may safely use it, if prescribed by your doctor. It is not likely to cause heart damage.
Hope this clears your query please write back if you have any more concerns.
Wish you good health.
