I'm 34 and towards the end of last year I began having really strange heart palpitations/thumping that would wake me up.
My mum had heart surgery to repair her mitral valve years ago and was told it was anxiety all her life unto it got so severe so she was adimant about me getting this checked out.
My echo came back as a minor leak. And my 24 hour monitor I had done showed a normal heart rate:beat during that 24 hour period. I am to be monitored now. My next echo is in 3 years.
I spoke to my GP about exercise etc and keeping healthy etc. But I'm still left a bit stressed and anxious. Just decided to join here. Wondered if anyone else is in my shoes and what their outcome is or what they do. What should I be doing. Will it get worse ?Gp said their is no knowing of that. That it could just stay the same.
I think the un certainty is driving me a bit mad and I'm not sure I could go through what my mum did.
