Mitral Valve Prolapse is a heart murmur found commonly in the general public and can cause heart palpitations, orthostatic hypotension (dizziness upon standing), other symptoms of an imbalanced nervous system and anxiety/panic symptoms. Medical Research studies have found it to be even more common in thyroid disease patients, especially those with autoimmune types of thyroid disorders. It is also believed to be about five times more common in females than in males.
Many people with MVP do not experience symptoms while those who do are termed as having "MVP-Syndrome". The condition can also cause an imbalance in the "involuntary nervous system" (dysautonomia) and has been associated with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome in some patients who have it. This audiobook can help to provide the reader with a general education regarding the symptoms, diagnosis and treatment of this very common "click heart murmur". This audiobook is not intended to be an extensive medical manual but contains information most often sought by laypersons on the subject.
