Heart beat fast, chances of mitral valve prolapse, advised to cut back coffee. Concerned?

Hi! I am 42 years old, female. My heart has for a long time always jumped or raced on occasion at night when i lay down. I do consume a few cups of coffee during the mornings, some tea during the day.. My doctor had told me to cut back as it may cause mitral valve prolapse . Now, it happens at any time during the day or night before i go to bed. i feel the pumping come on. it feels quick and fast. Iam more stressed right now however, as my father had been in hospital since dec. 23rd, then passed away last week. Should i be concerned?

Psychiatrist 's  Response
Thanks for choosing health care magic for posting your query.
Yes, you need to be concerned about your health. From the description that you have given, if your cardiologist feels that there is nothing serious then the complains can be due to anxiety disorder. You need to see a psychiatrist who can examine you in detail and advice you some relaxation techniques and also prescribe you some medications for the anxiety issues.
Hope I have answered your query. I will be more than happy to help you if you need any further clarifications.
