mitral valve prolapse

I was told by an er Dr that my MV may be getting worse, and I may need to get it replaced. How do you know? Are there symptoms. Or signs? I don't. Have insurance now.so I can't. Afford just to start seeing a cardo if I don't need to. I'm a 42 yr old female.
thanks

You may be eligible for health care, you just don't know unless you check.  Given your diagnosis, I would investigate the matter with a larger local hospital, hopefully a trauma center or teaching hospital, and ask to talk to social services.
You need an Echocardiogram.  I encourage you to examine your options carefully.  Keep us informed.
