Interesting development

After a difficult week that left me unable to drive on several days, a friend sent me some books and some information that may actually be helpful! Apparently there is a connection between Mitral Valve Prolapse and anxiety/panic disorders. I started doing some research and found Mitral Valve Prolapse Syndrome and my symptoms almost completely match. Other than the low blood pressure and low BMI lol because my blood pressure is high and I'm getting more overweight by the day.

However, it is a light at the end of the tunnel. Apparently many sufferers go through what I'm going through trying to figure it out, test after test and eventually deciding they are going crazy. I can't wait to talk about this with my doctor!

I am sorry for what you have been going through. Hope you are seeing doctor soon to discuss this with him? Prayers and hugs.

I sure hope this is the answer for you. The connection between anxiety, depression, and the heart is not well understood. Maybe your experience will help others who are trying to figure out what is going on.
