I have been having irregular heart beats. I have very mild tricuspid regurg.

hi. i m 26, female. for the past year i ve been having irregular heart beats. it feels like my heart stops for a moment and then moves within my chest . pretty weird and very frustrating. i told it to my doctor, he thought i had a mitral valve regurge and sent me to get an echo which showed no MVR but very mild tricuspid regurg. the doctor said a lot of people have it and shouldn t cause any pb. but in fact it does, or it s something else i don t know. i always have it when i squat or when i make a deep breath , when i m nervous too. yesterday i was about to go to ER, it was that bad. i even get dizziness and muscle weakness, maybe because i get so scarred. could this minor regurgitation cause such symptoms? do i need to have additional tests done? thank you in advance, i appreciate any response.

You should get a Holter monitor done for 24/48hrs or an event monitor to catch these symptoms on ECG and see what they really are. Ask your doctor about it.

I have severe mitral valve regurge with mild stenosis. Sclerotic aorta with trace regurge. I had open heart in 2005 for a mitral repair. I was diagnosed with myoxmatous disease. I also have pulmonary vein reversal with blunting. What does the latter term mean??? Does this mean beginning heart failure. EF is 60%. Thanks

Hello, my name is Tim My 23.8 yr old son has DMD and is showing signs of tricuspid and bicuspid regurg. He has VERY little muscle left in his body. If the dystrophy is attacking his heart at this point will it become more aggressive against organs or will it continue as slowly as when he had muscle tissue?

hi Doc, My baby (17 days old, weigh 4kg now - he was born 3,7kg) has Congenital Heart Disease. The Electrocardiograph report done when he was 2days old showed: - Presence of a moderated sized patent arterial duct with bidirectional shunting (mainly left to right) - Small to moderated sized perimembranous inlet VSD with septal aneurysm - Double secundum ASD with left to right shunting. -Mild tricuspid regurgitation and mild mitral regurgitation - Fast flow across right and left pulmonary arteries were noted. - Reassessment in one month age is recommended. He was born healthy just like normal baby. Doctor has found heart murmur on the 2nd day and suggested me to do echo of his heart (and i did as reported above). A ped cardiologist just suggested me to obsenrve and have another scan in a month time. To my observation, he started to develop symptoms such as sweating while nursing as well as hard breathing since day 8 (until now). And I have googled around that his disease is also called AVSD which is strongly associated with Down Syndrome. He, though, looks psychically fine to me (at least his face looks normal to me). Is my assumption of the down syndrome true enough? I have made my own physical examination to my son and found that he has got of the physical symptoms of having DS (small ears, gap between toe and second finger and probably low muscle tone). How can you help me in my uncertainty. I am really stressed of this situation. Thank you Doc
