    Hi Michelle

    So sorry to hear of the loss of your mother. The cardiac condition you describe is similar to my daughters and it has caused her no problems. She runs and cycles and swims competing in mini triathlons. Shes a mother. Its the anxiety you are experiencing that you need to work on. Gp can give you anti depressants whilst coming to terms with your loss but alternatively you can use alternatives like lavender oil, tissue salts, rescue remedy spray, yoga etc., to calm you. Look into these very gentle remedies and know that your anxiety will start to lessen with time. Your cardiac diagnosis should cause you no health problems. I wish you a long and healthy life.

    Aortic regurgitation has different classifications and each classification presents a different scenario.  But with mild aortic regurg you're not apt to die young unless it's severe, because it's the strongest vessel in our bodies.  It's tensile strength ( how much pressure it can withstand) is measured at 1,000 mm.  Try to get your anxiety under control, you don't need to be worrying just yet.  I'm sorry for the loss of your mother, I'm assuming she

    suffered from a cardiac condition as well, correct?  Heart murmurs can be organic or functional, you don't say what your murmur is.
