Is there any teatment for Mitral Valve Prolapse ?

Hello, i am almost 19 years old male. and before 2 year during regular medical checkup doctors told me that i am suffering from MLP. They said there is left ventricle thickness. but now when i go for check up, doc told me that there is a collapse in your one heart valve and declare me a Mvp patient after an echo test. at that time i wasn t felling any symptoms. Here is some values my report showing. Aortic Root = 21mm Left atrium = 22mm IV septum = 09mm LV PW = 09mm LVED = 41mm LVES = 27mm EF = 70% F/S = 40% NORMAL SIZED LB WITH GOOD LV SISTOLIC FUNCTION NORMAL SIZED RA & RV FIRST DEGREE MITRAL VALVE PROLAPSE NORMAL OTHER VALVES INTACT IAS & IVS NORMAL PERICARDIUM . My current symptoms are: 1) i am felling pain in left side of my heart almost every day 1 hour to 4 hour at different timings. Usually i feel it when i take a deep breath . 2) some time i feel like my heart is beating very heard like jumping. 3) Does high temperature effect on MVP patient health like here temperature goes to 45C usually. Pleas tell me that what should i do? go to doc again or its just a usual thing and also how critical is this case?

Hi Welcome to HealthcareMagic

The above parameters are within the normal range... Since the diagnosis is first degree MVP ( mitral valve prolapse) nothing much to worry.. you can lead a normal life.. only thing you must do is to avoid coffee, tea, alcohol, smoking which will have harmful effect on heart, also you must not strain much by going tom Gym, or exercise.... If you have have palpitation(sense of feeling your heart beat) or chest pain then you can consult the cardiologist, they will treat you... complications of MVP are rare... Do not worry...

Hi, So my Grandpa is 89 and is curently in the hospital. He has had Atrial Fibrillation for sometime now but has been very healthy up until the last couple months. He wil be fine one day then wake up the next and not be able to breath, walk and then is very confused and disoriented. We have him on blood thinners and are just trying to get to the bottom of whats happening. they feel these epsisodes are either caused from his heart or from these mini strokes in his brain. I just want another opinion or maybe some advice on possible treatments for him. he is a very strong man and is a fighter and wants to get better... any thoughts?

My mother just turned 80 and used to be very very healthy (has always taken very good of herself) until recently I think she quit taking blood pressure medicine 2 years ago and lost a pet and recently moved. Her feet and ankles were swollen and took her to doctor and they ran blood tests, ekg, chest x-ray and ultrasound will be this week. Doc said she had high blood pressure, atrial Fab, and maybe valve problems and presc. blood pressure medicine, baby aspirin, and high blood pressure medicine. She has been extremly forgettful and sleeps all the time now. Once, she is stablized w/meds and after fridays follow-up (more meds or surgery), do you think she will have more energy, less sleep, and more interest in activities?
