Suggest treatment for mild pulmonary regurgitation
Am I vulnerable to Pulmonary hypertension? Because 10 months with constant shortness of breath and all doctors say it is caused by anxiety, but I couldn't believe them because i feel it really bad, i ran Echocardiogram and doctor said i am okay, as well as chest x-ray, pulmonary function device, and it turned out that i have a little asthma that i used to know in the past and it didn't bother me before i got the problem of shortness of breath. Can i work out or it is not good for me?
Hi and thank you for asking!
I read your query and understood your concerns.
After reviewing your cardiac echo I found that apart having a mild pulmonary regurgitation (PR) you have a normal heart.
Based on the echo and other examinations you have mentioned you aren't vulnerable to pulmonary hypertension. In your case general recommandation is prophylactic use of antibiotics in case of infection to avoid infective endocarditis.
You have asthma, although it didn't bothered you in the past it should properly addressed and treated. You symptoms may be a combination of two contributing factors:
1. mild asthma
2. raised anxiety levels.
My suggestion is to treat asthma and to lower your level of anxiety (exercise, recreational activities, yoga etc.) in order to relief your symptoms.
Hope this was of help!
Wish you health!
yes I'm sure about that. Mitral valve prolapse doesn't make you vulnerable to pulmonary hypertension. It will make you vulnerable to infective endocarditis. This is why your doctor recommended you prophylactic use of antibiotics.
Pulmonary hypertension is caused by severe mitral and aortal valve regurgitation or stenosis. Since nothing such were find on your echo you shouldn't worry, you aren't vulnerable to PH.
Yes i recommend to enroll on gym sports and other recreational activities. This will help in controlling asthma and your anxiety levels relieving your symptoms.
Wish you health!
