Leaky heart valve and extreme tiredness
My husband has never had any symptoms of heart problems but was diagnosed a few weeks ago with a heart murmur atrial fibrillation - he has never felt any palpitations but two ECG's have shown definitely atrial fibrillation. He was sent for an Echo last week which showed a leaky heart valve - the technician didn't tell him which valve. He has to see a cardiologist on Thursday this week but I wanted to ask if his extreme tiredness could be a symptom of this leaky valve? He seems fine, has no ankle swelling, nothing, but as soon as he sits down in the evening he falls asleep. I thought it was because he was busy at work all day, but we are on holiday just now and still he falls asleep. He will sleep for about an hour and a half and still sleep for 9 hours when he goes to bed about 2 hours later. This is the only symptom he has - only the tests have shown the leaky valve, AF and the murmur - if he hadn't gone to the doctor to have his BP taken we would never have known he had these problems. Do these heart problems cause extreme tiredness? Thank for any information.
