Mitral valve problem, have episodes of fainting. What treatment should be taken?
My twin sister is diagnose of heart problem. She has a mitra valve problem. 3 years ago she went home to our hometown to study. She collapse at our house & she was in icu for days. She s been seeing a cardiologist their but when she finish her schooling. She needs to come here, the problem she doesn t have any insurance at all so can t see a cardiology . Last december we bought her in sharp memorial coz she s sick. They said she need to see a cardiology to check on her.
These patients with mitral valve problem are prone to have arrythmias which may have caused her collapse.
It is true that she needs a cardiologist to see her. She needs ECG, holter and echocardiogram test for her evaluation.
