Hi,
There is no option for mitral stenosis and regurgitation except surgery.
Continue medical treatment and regular follow up to cardiologist.
Quit smoking,this is very much required and you have to stop.

Hello, I am a 39 year old female. I received my second ever kenalog shot for allergies over a week ago. The one previous was a year prior to that. In the past 3 days I have been experiencing heart palpitaions the entire day and night. I have had palpiations for years now, but only once in a while. The palpitions I am now experiencing are continuous. I had been tested about five years ago and was told I had tricuspid and mitral valve regurgitation. Several years later a different doctor sent me for testing and it showed no regurgitation. It doesnt make sense to me. My question is do you think it is possible the palpitations are caused by the kenalog? I was put back on Singulair as well but stopped taking it to see if that was the culprit. I am uneasy with this feeling and it is stressing me out more so worrying about it. Thank you in advance.

Past history: i have suffered from indigestion over the last 5 years,i had open heart surgery 9 years ago for mitral regurge(carpentier ring) and i am not taking any medications
i had some investigations done,urine and stool analysis were normal,occult blood in stools was negative,ESR was normal and CBC showed mild leucopenia(3900/cmm),differential count showed absolute lymphocytosis and mild neutropenia(1400/cmm),thyroid functions were also ordered and were found to be normal.My treating physician think that i suffer either from lactose intolerance or gluten disease,and went on diet restriction for all food containing wheat or dairy products for 2 weeks but with minimal improvement.
what are the possible diagnosis for my case and what further investigations that can be done to confirm diagnosis
thanks and my regards

I was diagnosed with mild mitral valve regurgitation following a heart MRI. The cardiologist said this was "normal" as most of the population have it. I have left-sided chest pains radiating into the left arm. I'm 40, 3 stones overweight with a total cholestoral of 5.7. Was he right that MVR is normal?
