For about 2 years now I have been having symptoms of fluttering heart and heavy heart beat but have not given any attention to it because it would only occur once very couple of weeks or so. Recently the symptoms got worse to the point that I was gasping for air when the fluttering occurred. I went to a cardiologist and the doctor diagnosed me with MVP by using ultrasound and having me squeeze down. When I did this, the mitral valve bent backwards. I explained that when I have the symptoms that I am not squeezing down, but the doctor said that I might be doing that and just don’t know it. Does this sound right? I am on a heart monitor right now because the symptoms do not occur at specific times. Any thoughts?
