Mitral Valve Prolapse Signs and Symptoms

Actually, very often people who are having MVP (mitral valve prolapse), don’t notice any symptoms. However, a great number of people suffer from such symptoms as, for example:

  • tiredness
  • heart tremors
  • heart tremors
  • chest pain
  • nervousness
  • migraine headaches
  • stroke (though it’s, in fact, very uncommon)

As well, a great number of people complain that they have fatigue, though doctors can’t understand its reasons. Moreover, people who have mitral valve prolapse sometimes feel nervous system imbalances, which control heart rate and the process of breathing. And as a result, these imbalances can be a reason of not adequate delivery of blood oxygen to the muscles that work, and in that way it may be a reason of fatigue.

One more symptom of mitral valve prolapse is palpitations (they are feelings of quick or unequal heart beats). But as for the people with MVP, these palpitations are often not dangerous. However, sometimes serious heart rhythm anomalies may motivate palpitations which need further examine and healing.

Actually, from time to time people with mitral valve prolapse report sharp long-drawn-out pain in their chest. One more strange detail with mitral valve prolapse is that chest pain hardly ever takes place for the period of or after exercise, and such medicine as nitroglycerin doesn’t always help;
Moreover, such symptoms as, for example nervousness, panic attacks, and despair is, in fact, may be connected with MVP. Scientists say that such sign as, for example, tiredness may be connected with imbalances of the autonomic nervous system.

As well, mitral valve prolapse sometimes can be a reason of migraine headaches because of irregular nervous system manage of the pressure in the blood vessels in the brain.
Actually, strokes from time to time are linked with mitral valve prolapse because people can suffer from high blood clotting tendencies because of unusually clammy blood clotting cells, named platelets.
