Mitral Valve Prolaspe
Thu, 12-09-2004 - 3:30pm

Hi all,

I'm a 25 year old female diagnosed with an irregular heartbeat and mitral valve prolase a little over a year ago. Just wondering if anyone else has had experience with this and how you are being monitored. To be honest I feel like my cardiologist doesn't give a crap! She barely explained anything to me and a year later i'm not sure about what kind of follow ups I should be doing.

To top it off i've been taking bextra for the past year to treat my endometriosis..also dianosed last year....could I have had a heart attack?

when it rains it pours!

Thanks for any advice.

I had a mitral valve prolapse from birth and had it repaired when I was five (as well as a few other things).
