Mitral Valve Regurgitation anyone??

Hello all, I've just turned 50 and have MCTD, raynauds, sjrogrens, asthma and mild COPD. Today I received a letter from my consultant saying my ECG showed this and she is arranging further investigations. Does anyone have any info or advice? I'm just so fatigued lately that trailing through Google is just too exhausting so would really appreciate any help. 😊 Bronagh

  • Hi Foxy thanks for your reply, I looked up the info Stone recommended and it's actually a leaky valve in the heart resulting in the blood not getting properly pumped around the body. It's all a bit worrying but I'll try to put it out of my head till I see my Consultant.
