Have mitral valve prolaps. Taking Folic acid b-stress pills. Fast heartbeat. Suggest.

Hi, I have a mitral valve prolaps, I seem to be ok but for 3 weeks now I have been taking Folic acid b-stress pills and extra folic acid pills. I have not checked if I am pregnant yet because my period is due sometime this week. The problem I have is fast heartbeat, body a little shaky and last night I woke up because I felt weird, got scared it could be my heart. Help!

Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

It has no relation to the folic acid or vitamin.
You should see a doctor and get yourself investigated - anaemia, thyroid, anxiety, personality, caffeine, t times heart problem also! - the list is long... needs analysis.

THE FIRST STEP IS TO SEE A CARDIOLOGIST / The beats need to be DOCUMENTED by ElectroCardioGram (EKG)...

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck

Internal Medicine Specialist Dr. Akhilesh Dubey's  Response
Welcome to HCM,
You have mitral valve prolapse,which can cause fast heart rate, as you also suspect that you could be pregnant, first confirm that if negative then beta blocker may be prescribed to you which will be very useful to you but only after consulting your Physician/Cardiologist.
It is also possible that you have little anxiety which can cause fast heart rate.
If you are pregnant then you have to consult your Gynecologist and take proper care.
Mitral valve prolapse is benign heart condition and does not require any specific treatment but certain precautions are required, like antibiotic prophylaxis before any minor surgical procedures.
Please take folic acid and vitamin supplements with advise from your doctor.
Take care
Good Luck.
