Does stress cause the mitral valve to get worse ?

I have mitral valve regurgitation and prolapse with palpitations and possibly an unstable angina. I talked with my cardiologist, but he isn t really all that much help. When I first told him of the pain, he grabs my shoulder and asked me if that hurt. Well, duh. It wasn t my muscle that hurt. Then on Monday, it got worse. It was my whole left side of my chest and up my neck. I called him on Monday during my working hours and told his nurse about my situation and she recommended the emergency room. She wouldn t say what was wrong or nothing. My husband didn t care about my health at all when I called to tell him what the doctor said about it.

Yes it does, Stress affects the whole body and even organs when it's prolonged, your heart is already diseased so I will recommend you to try to take it easier Madam, Stress is going to make your Heart worse, try to talk to your husband, make a time for the both of you to solve your situations and TALK, maybe you need a different way to communicate with him and make him understand how stressful you have been feeling lately and how sick this is making you feel and tell him that you need his help and co-operation. Give it a try. :)
