welcome to healthcare magic.
the clinical features of mitral prolapse is typical of mitral regurgitation.
your sickness,dizziness & headache probably all are due to low cardiac output.
An echo is better for evaluating the present condition.
It will give idea about the heart failure & ejection fraction.
It will also help for the formulation of treatment.
Take care.
