Hello, Thank you for your question. I will try my best to help you with your questions.
Are you diagnosed with MVP?
Are you tall ? long arms ?
any chest deformity ?
Well, organomegaly or large organs like liver and spleen can be seen with MVP
if associate with marfan or myxomatous disorders
or other connective tissues diseases.
ok, your welcome.
In most cases it is clinical examination which does the trick there are other genetic tests which can help confirm the diasnosis.
Well, in your age with such symptoms i would put more stress on pulmonary issues, pulmonary hypertension.
Yes MVP can cause such issues but does not causes dizziness unless very severe
These are issues that are more common at your age from cardiology point of view
pulmonary hypertension is one of the main diagnosis that should be worked in your case.
It is increased pressure in the pulmonary arteries due to narrowing or due to increased pressure in the lungs or left heart.
Echocardiogram is best simple test that helps as initial evaluation in such cases.
So more than MVP i would consider pul.HTN as possible cause.
depends on cause. In initial cases with diagnosed cause outcome is good. In late stages not so good.
so early diagnosis is the key.
At your age with initial symptoms i think outcome will be good..
In most cases after 50 years is is not good.
so early diagnosis and treatment.
I know i have worked there.
It can be...
more chances are of pul.HTN
its typical symptom is symptoms on activity in young female. So it is my first diagnosis unless proven negative with echocardiogram.
yes.. ask him to check your pulse oximetery with exertion.
if levels fall it means he has to refer you
he can do this in his clinic
no, it needs checking oxygen levels in blood during exercise.
it is like a clip which is attached to finger tip and it records oxygen levels
low level with activity means it is likely pul.HTN
it is good, it needs to be checked with activity.
it needs to be checked with activity. at rest it is normal.
around 6 min walk or 330 meters
you are welcome.
