Should I be concerned

I'm a 30 yr old female, and as I remember for the past nine years my heart rate as been somewhere between 100-130. But I have also always had a history of passing out, but noone has ever found the reason why. I have been diagnosed with Mitral Valve Prolapse w/ Mild Regurgitation, Migraines, and Asthma and the word that starts with an R that means poor blood circulation (I cant spell it). Normally these things were under control with either medicine or they just bothered me once in a blue moon and I didn't worry about them, because I knew that the doctors mainly looked at my age instead of anything else. But here lately I have been feeling lightheaded more often and my headaches have been coming back more and more. My husband has been making me check my heart rate since it has been hurting a little (that was how they found the valve problem). And every now and then my fingers will constrict back like I'm drawing them into a fist or something. I don't know what to think. I figured I'd ask someone on here before I went anywhere and heard the same old story.

Hi. You descrbe a lot of history, symptoms, and problems along with some of your impressions of prior medical conclusions, which you seem sceptical about.

If it is important to you, you could set your mind and put a priority on getting answers. Some people have medical conditions that require more qualified assistance for effective troubleshooting. The potential benefits of being seen at a favored institution include correct diagnoses and effecfive treatment. Alternately ' you may have more confidence in your existing diagnosis after being seen by medical professionals with a fresher perspective. In the US, we have a lot of great choices. In a case like this its probably not a bad idea to check out some options.

Best of luck.

Thank you for your reply to my post. But can you please explain what you mean by "fresher perspective" because I am uncertain about what you mean.

I was really just looking at your post.  You referred to the same old story.  To me it sounds like you may have run into a repeat performance that you have doubts about or are just plain unhappy with.  I've been there on that  one and understand it.

Now, its your heart we are talking about here; you are entitled to be dissatisfied with the answers you have been given.  My suggestion is to seek out a more qualified, more up to date medical professional who can bring some fresh ideas to you.  In the US, we have very good medical care.  People with long term problems, and difficult problems, mostly have good reason to have hope.  But it has been myy experience that you might have to go out and find something better sometimes. Consider an out of state oe out of area visit if necessary...
