Hi young man, thanks for the question. People with Mitral Valve prolapse
are known to have heart rhythm disturbance (leading to palpitations) and heightened anxiety
(related or unrelated to palpitations). Beta blockers are the treatment of choice for this and has beneficial effects (and not deleterious) on the heart. It does not affect the kidneys. I hope you have also had 24hour or 7 day continuous monitorinsince you are ong of your heart tracing to look for heart rhythm disturbance in the past. If you dont have any symptoms now (since you are on prolomet
) you dont have to have heart trace monitoring now if not already done).
You are young with high BP
and hence would require a through investigation for secondary hypertension
. I hope this has been done by your physician. If you have had a kidney scan I would be keen to know the result.
Most important for you is to have your BP under control and see a cardiologist regularly. Trying to come off a medicine which is going to help you is not advisible.
Let me know if I can be of any furthet help.
