My little sister was diagnosed with MITRAL VALVE PROLAPSE about two or three years ago, after several unexplained fainting spells. Since then, she has been in drug therapy with very little improvement. As a matter of fact, she seems to be worse now than a year ago. He primary symptoms are dizziness (which leads to extreme nausea, heart "fluttering" or accelerated heart rate with what she calls "odd" pain in her heart, and extreme fatigue. Her cardiologists has told her the next step is to install a pacemaker, which REALLY freaked her out. She is starting to get really depressed because she feels like an 80 year old woman in a 21 year old body. I need help.
