What causes occasional chest pain, cough and breathing problem in a MVP patient?
You need to consult your doctor.
Thanks for posting your query.
See , severe chest pain due to any cause have to be considers seriously and evaluated further . In addition , you have MVP and response to propranolol indicates that the chest pain is due to heart problem ( most likely ).
Hence it is strongly recommended that you consult your doctor and get further evaluation done.
Hope this information was useful to you.
Any clarification feel free to ask.
You can stop Propranolol till you meet your doctor.
Well you doctor is certainly right. There are certain changes in stress test report that are considered abnormal in males while they are normally seen in females.
First we need to find the cause of chest pain . Once that is done , I ( Or your doctor ) can tell you if propranolol needs to be continued or not.
You can stop propranolol till you consult your doctor.
I had a perfect heart till one summer, when I suffered from heat exhaustion. The paramedics were using the word heat stroke, but I refused to go to the hospital. My last echo cardiogram showed the m.v.p. and a small leak in my tricuspid valve. The most recent attack of chest pain happen while I was just sitting in a chair. The attack be for that came while I was shopping. I was stopped in my tracks. I could not walk for a couple of minutes. The pain was so bad I went straight home for my pill and it took away the pain. I now carry extra pills with me for just that reason.
Did the heat exhaustion do this? All of my Aunts and Uncles on my Dad s side, including my Dad died from heart disease. And all my life I have been so ordering when am I going to feel old ? I still feel like a 20 or 30 year old. I never had children. Never been married. (and I like it that way ).
Not due to Heat exhaustion.
Well , MVP with mild leakage is not a major disease and is very unlikely to cause chest pain. So there must be something else that is causing chest pain. It could be either problem in the heart or something else ( Like Gastritis , muscle pain or lung problem ).
It would be better to evaluate for the cause of the severe chest pain. I recommend you ask for Coronary Angiogram test also.
Well in my opinion i don't think it is due to Heat exhaustion.
reggular cardiac evaluation
HI, thanks for the follow up.
No need to worry much about the mitral stenosis. As you are having this condition since you are 40 you should be in a regular follow up with the cardiologist.
The pain could be due to arthritis. but again do consult your physician immediately.
