hello would you like to chat on this?
hello what are your symptoms in the heart?
When I was a young child, I had a prolapse in the heart. I'm 29 years old now. But I'm still concerned about that condition. I've been told that the prolapse should disappear over the course of aging. However, in recent days I have experienced some unpleasant feelings in the heart. I tend to worry too much about everything. My relatives told me those feelings are not connected to the prolapse but the result of my constant worries. WebMD.com agrees. But what would you say? Should I be worried about that heart condition and recent developments?
you do not need to be worried, but you do need to go for a cardiological checkup
what are your symptoms presently?
well, they are pretty strange. They are not constant. Not a sharp pain, but rather some discomfort and just unpleasant feelings.
and heart beat around upper 70s-80s
these may be nothing more than your anxiety
that heart beat is normal
buut you should still go for checkup to see the condition of your valve now
I have traveled by airplane recently. there was a big turbulence at one point
in the majority of cases, valve prolapses are benign and need only monitoring
but monitoring is necessary
since you have not been checked for so long, you must go for a heart checkup now
go to your primary and ask for a cardiological referral, or go to a cardiologist directly
an ECHO of the heart is necessary
this will check the condition of the valve and rule out complications
discuss with the cardiologist about how often monitoring is required
this is necessary to keep your heart safe
