How severe is the regurgitation? It can be classified as trace, mild, moderate or severe. If your cardiologist told you that it is not serious, it can not be more than mild.
When trace or mild, there is really nothing to worry about.
When moderate or severe you will need to be monitored more frequently, but even in these cases it is often not needed to do anything else than just monitor for progression.
Your symptoms are more those of anxiety than of the mitral regurgitation.
You mentioned you had high BP and it's under control now. What meds are you taking for the BP, when did you start them, and is that start time close to when your new symptoms started? What are you doing to lose weight?
I changed my diet to loose weight and fitness.
I was using Sumatriptan Aurobindo 100mg for 1 year in mornings. After started to feel dizzy (1 month ago) doctor told me to reduce to half tablet.
Average blood pressure was 145/90 and now its 120/85. In bad days now it can go up to 140/105 and then I'm feeling terrible. After a while (~1h) it goes away and I'm back to normal.
My symptoms were there all the time and now that I know what is causing it I want to ask you guys some pointers.
Doctor did not told me anything else,. From his reaction, like you said, I understood that it is trace or mild.
Do you think it could be anxiety?
I have all following symptoms mentioned here:
Aortic regurgitation – A patient can have significant aortic regurgitation for 10 to 15 years without developing significant symptoms. When symptoms begin, there may be palpitations; cardiac arrhythmias; shortness of breath during exertion; breathlessness while lying down (orthopnea); sudden, severe shortness of breath during the middle of the night (paroxysmal nocturnal dyspnea); sweating; angina; and symptoms of heart failure.
It is not happening all the time (shortness of breath, sweating), I noticed that it dose not happen when I'm lying down with big pillow under my shoulders.
I presumed that you have mitral valve regurgitation, at least that is what the title of your posting suggests. Unless the regurgitation is severe, you will probably not notice it.
I have moderate regurgitation of the mitral valve and I never noticed any effects of breathlessness etc. from it. I am monitored for years now and it has till now not worsened. I must have it now for at least 40 years.
Just about everyone will have some regurgitation. All my valves have some regurge, never been an issue.
If the BP meds are what's causing you to be dizzy, try looking into other meds. There's is about 3 major ways to address it, and of those 3 major classes there are many meds to try.
The best way to address it is through weight loss. The range you've noted seems to be weight related. You'd be amazed at what getting your BMI < 25 will do. Mine was in the 140-90 range for a bit of time, doc started talking about putting me on BP meds. Lost 20 pounds and now mine is 120-80 at the docs office. When I'm home and relaxed it's 110 - 60.
I personally would rather not take BP meds if it could be avoided, just to not deal with the sdie effects likes you're experiencing.
Thanks for input. Now that I'm thinking, it could be related to meds that I'm taking. I will do more to loose weight and then check what's happening with me.
