I was diagnosed with mild Mitral Valve prolapse and regurgitation when I was 26 years old. I'm now 57. I never had any symptoms. When I was 44, I was told that the regurgitation was escalating, so I started monitoring it more closely, with annual echos, EKGs, etc. My regurgitation became severe a few years ago, but still no symptoms. As a matter of fact, I've been running marathons since 2009. In January 2021 I started feeling arrhythmias and palpitations. I had other tests performed, consulted with a couple of cardiologists (besides mine). They all concluded that I shouldn't wait too much to have my MV repaired, which happened on April 2021.
