> HI,
> I am very curious to know what your doc says about your condition, especially since I have the exact same thing, mild mitral valve prolapse and trivial mitral regurgitation. I had a different echo cardiogram that said I had the same thing without the words mild and trivial. So who knows. I have never taken a stimulant, but I do know that effexor made my heart do a song and dance. Of course my pdoc said effexor doesn't do that, but when I stopped the effexor my heart stopped fluttering all over the place.
> Let me know what your doc says, although I really don't think a pdoc is going to know enough about cardiology to answer your question.

HI! This message was of particular interest to me mainly because mvp is not uncommon to individuals who have experienced anxiety or panic disorder.Your pdoc may have associated your cardio symtoms with anxiety rather than the med. I would recommend that you seek a Biopsychiatrist if your doc seems unfamilar with cardio. The reason being is that a pdoc should look beyond the the neck up for possible alternative causes for your condition including side effects to the meds rxed. Example, you go to your eye doc for a routine exam and some new contacts on internal observation of your retina, he/she notes some small hemorrhages. The diagnoses does not have to be ocular only. It may well be that this person is diabetic,hypertensive,anemic,have carotid artery disease,the list is extensive, but these are systemic conditions causing a visual problem not just a visual disorder. Your doctor must have solid background in many areas of medicine. Being a specialist does not mean that you do not have to have comprehensive medical knowledge. Disease processes effect many systems of the body not just the part. I hope you are getting the idea,if not I can try again. Have a great day. micro
