mitral valve,

Posted by @ferryrider in Heart & Blood Health, Nov 20, 2012

back in 1982? i was diagnosed with a mitral valve prolapse and then a few years ago i had a test done that showed i dont have a mitral valve prolapse, i have chest pain and sometimes when i run and take deep breaths i cough and when i recover the cough goes away, i have seen a doctor and had a stress test and i am going to have an echocardiogram done. my question is coughing normal with a mitral valve prolapse

I have had MVP since the late '70's. NO, coughing is NOT normally associated with this condition. The underlying cause of your cough could possibly be a mild form of exercise induced asthma or something similar. report this symptom to your doc, as it is not a usual symptom.

I have severe MVP and cardiomyopathy. Working through tests now to be put on heart transplant list. Last summer I was hospitalized with congestive heart failure. In my experience, coughing was most definitely a symptom!
