Feeling Dizzy
I am a 40 year old woman that has been diagnosed with mild to moderate Mitral Valve Insufficiency. I was diagnosed with this last year and was told to get another echocardiogram in 3 to 5 years. I have been feeling dizzy and light headed for the last 2 to 3 months. I have heart palpitations with shortness of breath sometimes. Some days I feel tired and fatigued even when I haven't been to active. When I wake from sleeping my hands have fallen asleep and I have the tingling sensation in my fingertips. I have also noticed that I have blood in my stools sometimes. I saw another doctor recently and he was concerned due to the fact he could hear my heart murmur in my neck. He wants me to get another echocardiogram to rule out Aortic Stenosis. He also said my cholesterol is high (229) but my good cholesterol is great (65). I don't have high blood pressure or diabetes but I am over weight, borderline obese. I would like to know if my Mitral Valve Regurgitation can progress to Aortic Stenosis? Can my constant dizzyness be related? Also why my hands fall asleep more now than ever before and if this is serious? Do my symptoms mean I am going to have a stroke or heart attack?
Thanks for your help,
Rhett
