Apr 11, 2016 · Mitral Valve & Tricuspid valve regurgitation: when to see a cardiologist? in Heart & Blood Health

Thank you all very much. I was so shocked to hear this Dx. Never thought i would have a heart issue, ive always been an active hiker, runner and biker. However, this past 2 years ive noticed my energy level just wasnt the same. I blamed it on moving from sunny AZ where i lived for the past 16 yrs , back to cold and dreary Iowa to be near family.
I will call my primary and have them suggest a cardiologist for a 2nd opinion.

By the way i just turned 43 yrs. Old and female. Never had heart issues before until i went to the dr. For a check up she heard a loud murmur had an echo cardiogram done and was Dx with mitral and tricuspid valave. Im relative healthy, i was exercising regularly until this past fall and winter, ive been feeling more fatigued, i thought it was the winter blues and work schedule. When i tried to exercise, i tire out. Help.
Thank you.

I was just diagnosised with Mitral Valve and tricuspid insufficiency. I have had symptoms of fatigue, heart flutters, lightheadness, and one time passed out. Some discomfort in my left chest side area, sharp. Not all the time. My Dr. Told me this is common and we will recheck in 5 yrs. Im nervous to wait that long. What should i do? I cant stop thinking about this.

Thank you.
Sincerely,
Mikkeleo
