heya, i've been having sharp chest pains, shortness of breath, dizzyness, fatigue and headaches that just don't ever go away for the last 3 years.
i've been in and out of doctors almost none stop but couldn't get a doctor to take me seriously because i am 24.
i pretty much had to bag my doctor for an echo, when it came back it showed i had mitral valve prolapse with regurgitation to it and my tricuspid.
i'm worried because my heart has been beating really hard the last few days and my BP was 125/103.
normally my top number is 130-150 but never my bottom... just wondering if i should start seeing a heart doctor? or if i'm just freaking out? =[
Your symptoms can be a lot of things. If you think its your heart you should see a cardiologist. I am not sure about the bp, but the mitral valve stuff regurg to that and tricuspid if its mild its not an issue. If it were moderate to severe obviously they would be treating you. My guess is that you wont feel better regardless until you talk to a cardiologist, so I say go and tell him your symptoms. He may want to do a stress test.
