Question: What is the best alternative way to treat Mitral Valve Prolapse? I was diagnosed with Mitral valve prolapse yrs. ago, but this has got worse and very troublesome and is interfering with daily routines stay inside away from people because of panic attacks and anxiety feet legs ,hands, and under eyes swell up like b***ons and causes discomfort.I sweat *** the time and catch infections very easly.Is their any over the counter medicenes or vitamins that will help my condition?

Answer: Mitral valve prolapse is a structural abnormality of the heart. Over the counter self-treatment is not going to be effective for what can be a very serious problem. The panic attacks that you describe are not a part of MVP. That sounds like a separate anxiety-related issue. You need to see a physician for a thorough history and physical, plus cardiac workup to evaluate the severity of your problem, and to distinguish the cardiac issues from the anxiety issues. You may need to be on prescription medications to optimize your heart function. The last resort for mitral valve disease is valve replacement surgery. People with MVP are susceptible to SBE - subacute bacterial endocarditis, which is an infection of the heart. It is difficult to treat and can lead to further heart problems. If you let things go too long, your condition may progress to the point where little can be done. Make an appointment with a doctor ASAP and get yourself sorted out. This is nothing to fool around with.
