Anyone with MVP: When were you diagnosed? Was it mild, moderate, or severe? Have you had a repair or replacement? How severe was it? How long had it been since you were diagnosed?

      @Scarletteve Hope you're okay :) I am on propranolol for migraines but I didn't notice that my resting heart rate dropped from around 85 to 67. Although I do sometimes get a massive increase (108bpm) in my resting heart rate which increases to about 120bpm when I start doing stuff. Not sure if this is stress related though. Also comes with chest pain. Is this the same kind of thing as you? (But on a less severe scale)

      I'm 21 and I was diagnosed with mitral valve regurgitation at around 16. I had always been told that I had an innocent heart murmur by doctors but found out what it actually was when I went to a pop up free clinic. Was told it was nothing to worry about. I got a fit bit this year and discovered the HRV calculator. Mine seems to be ridiculous low. On average around 23ms. I am curious if this is because of the murmur.

      I was diagnosed three years ago in my 30s. Mild symptoms. Started in lockdown feeling like i am going to faint while my heart was palpitating. I have cut out caffeine from my diet and since have barely to no symptoms at all. Still drink coffee because i love it but decaf.

      I’m 19 and I was diagnosed at 13. It was super mild and caught by accidental. It’s gotten a lot worse. Just recently had to be in hospital and have been put on beta blockers (propranolol) and am awaiting catheter ablation. Never used to have any symptoms but now I get resting heart rates of 130-150 and constant ectopic beats

      Mild and diagnosed at a month old I've been dealing with it since birth as it started with truncus arteriosus coarctation of the Aortic Valve and I had 2 holes in my heart. I was basically born blue and doctors had to take me and do surgery at a month old they sent me home I was born blue and no one back in the 90s thought hey maybe this baby has a heart condition that can kill her.

      Mild, diagnosed in my 20s at college, no surgery or other treatment. My dentists don’t even see a need to prescribe antibiotics prior to cleanings and procedures, but that might be obsolete advice by now for me.
