Does smoking marijuana affect heart readings on a monitor?

my heart seems to stop or something about 20 times a day and i struggle to breath just for a few seconds.
It would be difficult to predict the cause without an Holter monitoring. Have you consulted a cardiologist?
I have mvps and not on beta blockers anymore cause of the side affects. I hace baby abd tge stressakes my heart race will this wear my heart out sooner
It is most common Heart valve disease. In most, it does not show any symptoms and thus it does it not need treatment. Symptoms like Chest pain, Palpitation, Tiredness you may need treatment. Endocarditis and Stroke are very rare in MVPS. Some have migraine type of headache. Echocardiography and 24-hour Holter monitor every few year needed. Only few need Beta blockers and Surgery.Takecare
