Mitral Valve Leakage And Stress

My inbox is filling up with some very interesting questions. I just received a question that reads, “Is stress a symptom of mitral valve leakage?”

Stress Symptom Of Mitral Valve Leakage

As I’ve written before, there are several leaking heart valve symptoms identified by leading heart care facilities including The Cleveland Clinic and The Mayo Clinic. (Please click here to view those symptoms.)

However, from my own research, I have not seen any clinical studies which suggest that mitral valve leakage is directly related to stress (as a symptom). However, as a former patient, I could very easily see how being diagnosed with mitral valve leakage creates stress. 🙂

If you have any, extra information on this topic of stress and mitral valve leakage, please help out and leave a reply below.

Keep on tickin!

    Let me tell you Adam: Sergio (succesful mitral valve replaced patient) had no symptoms at all but: STRESS. I don’t know if it was coincidence or what but he was very stressed up and felt how the heart was pumping a lot and that is why he went to his doctor obviously not thinking it was a heart related thing. Maybe it was just time to find out what he had!

    I’m waiting for my mitral valve replacement and having trouble with my memory (lack of). I’ve told my 27 and 30 year old sons:

    Life is like a box of chocholates, you never know what I’m gonna FORGET.

    Think it’s due to the stress of waiting.
