Mitral and Tricuspid Regurgitation

I was diagnosed with Mitral Valve Regurgitation about 5 yrs ago (I'm 29) and recently the Tricuspid from pregnancy.  I feel lightheaded quite a few times throughout the day, everyday...is this common?

Mitral valve regurgitation is usually mild and progresses slowly. You may have no symptoms for decades and be unaware that you have this condition. Lightheadedness can be a symptom of MVR.  I have moderate to severe MVR and no symptoms, but your symptom is listed as a possible effect.

You should have your doctor rule out any problem because sometimes, the problem develops quickly, and you may experience a sudden onset of more-severe signs and symptoms. Your pregnancy may be involved so I have provided a link that discusses that aspect.  Hope this helps, and thanks for sharing.
