Hi, after several months of hospital visits and almost every '-ologist' doctor visits, I have finally found the cause behind my symptoms which have been getting worse over time (chest pains and the feeling of tightness, shortness of breath and general random trouble breathing whether there was some physical activity or no physical activity, heart palpitations, fainting and dizziness spells, tremors and shakiness, lightheadedness, fatigue). I went to a cardiologist, whom gave me an echocardiogram, and I was diagnosed with mitral valve prolapse, although most people suffering from this heart disorder don't have any symptoms at all throughout their whole lives.The main results from the echo: enlarged left ventricle, mitral regurgitation, MVP. The cardiologist also did an ECG and confirmed heart arrythmia and IRBBB. After the cardiology visit, I was told to wear a holter for 24 hours and currently I am still waiting for the results, which I will recieve in 2-3 weeks. And this will show if I need medication, surgery or simply just to change my lifestyle. I'm writing on this forum to find out from anyone who suffers from the same heart disorder, how they went through it, if they recieved treatment. I simply want to find out something more from people who went through the same thing I am going through and if having all these symptoms every single day means that the mitral regurgitation is severe or moderate??
