Does anyone know what would cause rapid heartbeating, extremem shortness of breath while walking at a short pace uphill? Also, in the summer time, if hiking, not necessarily uphill.
I was diagnosed with Mitra valve prolapse years ago, but I never had this problem until the last year and a half. I've also experienced a lot of dizzniess lately.
Shortness of breath is usually caused by heart valves if you already have heart problems. See your cardiologist and request an echocardiogram to make sure that the valve has not become worse. The valves can become worse in a short period of time sometimes. I have spoken to people who said that their valves went from moderate to severe in a matter of three months. See your doctor. In the meantime, try to avoid hiking and walking uphills and take it easy if you get symptoms. Take care.
Is it correct to assume that your symptoms you are describing started in 2005 or 2006 .Do you also suffer from insomnia,tachycardia,nausea,memory problems,indigestion,fatigue .and many moreThank you
No it started around 2007-2008
I have bouts of insomnia. No tachycardia, unless you consider the rapid heartbeating after walking uphill it. My Mom was diagnosed with it years ago. Don't know if it's hereditary? I also have bouts of nausea, memory loss, indigestion & fatigue.
Now I'm REALLY worried! Why the questions? Do you know what's wrong with me? :(
