Question: Chest pain followed by headache
|Laurie Ann - Sat Oct 09, 2004 9:33 pm||
I am a 33 year old woman and was diagnosed several years ago with mitral valve prolapse and have not been on any medication or treatments. I have not since seen a cardiologist. I have experienced some symptoms tonight that concerned me (also note that I have experienced these symptoms once before several months ago, but tonight the symptoms are lingering a great deal longer ) I had some sharp pains in my chest that were then followed a few minutes later by a bad headache. I'm sure that this is not a normal thing. I'm just not sure if this is something that is related to my MVP or is it something more severe? The only other MVP symptoms that I have had is occassional chest pain/flutters. Thanks for any information.

Thanks for using our website. MVP is usually a very benign condition especially common in young females like yourself. However, its a condition that requires follow up from time to time. Several nasty complications can occur such as mitral regurgitation and infective endocarditis. Your symptoms may be related to MVP and should urge you to seek medical attention. Please check our MVP page for more details.
