Six Signs of Mitral Valve Prolapse Syndrome


What is Mitral Valve Prolapse Syndrome?

mitral valve prolapseMitral valve prolapse is a heart condition in which one of the heart’s valves, the one separating the left side’s upper and lower chambers, does not close properly. This can, but does not always, cause mitral regurgitation, a scenario in which blood flows backward because the valve isn’t closing fully when the heart contracts.

Fortunately, in most cases, a prolapsed mitral valve is not a problem and does not impact health or function. In fact, many people go undiagnosed until the condition is found incidentally when a physician is diagnosing something else and notices a heart murmur or vibration above the heart. However, in some cases, people demonstrate mitral valve prolapse syndrome, which indicates that mitral regurgitation is taking place. In this scenario, people may experience one or more of the following:

  1. Chest painoval link medical alert bracelet for men
  2. Dizziness
  3. Fatigue
  4. Shortness of breath
  5. Heart palpitations
  6. Anxiety attacks

Although a mitral valve prolapse is often harmless, it can cause complications including the symptoms above. In an emergency situation, wearing a heart condition medical ID bracelet is tremendously helpful to EMTs and ER personnel. This way, they know to know immediately that you have an existing heart condition, and they can offer appropriate treatment rather than starting from scratch, trying to discern the cause of your chest pain, fainting, or heart palpitations.
