I have Mitral Valve Disorder and Tricuspid Regurgitation along with AFib (heart was beating almost 200 beats per min and iv med didn’t work so they shocked it back into rhythm) along with other health issues but my cardiologist says nothing is wrong with my heart… Am I just stupid or what… no meds for any heart stuff only on my thyroid med and now on Vitamin D and Calcium … All my other specialists dont listen to me either. What should I do?

Hi, @cindym1960 — welcome to Mayo Clinic Connect. Please note I have merged your post into this discussion of Mitral Valve Disorder and Tricuspid Regurgitation so that you can meet some other members who have faced similar situations. I’m hoping you might all meet up here on this thread and that other members in this discussion might offer their insights on your recent experience and what’s (not) being prescribed for you at this time.

If you feel comfortable, would you share a little more about your history with mitral valve disorder and tricuspid valve regurgitation?

Hi cindym1960. I can’t say anything about meds for mitral valve disorder but
the tricuspid valve is another story. I take no meds for the tricuspid valve regurgitation and mine is severe. I just had a cardio version this past Thursday due to Afib. Second one in 9 months and not sure it has done the trick. I do have heart failure so take drugs for that.
Maybe a second opinion if you aren’t happy with what they’ve told you.
Good luck!
