When symptoms from mitral valve disorders become apparent they may present as fatigue, shortness of breath, palpitations, chest pain, etc., depending on the degree of the prolapse. One particular treatment aimed at reducing symptoms is by the use of medications, beta blockers or calcium channel blockers in people who don't tolerate beta blckers well. As for any dietary measures, reduction of caffiene products may help in decreasing palpitations if these are the results of dietary consumption.
