    Does anyone out there with FM /CFS have Mitral Valve Prolapse or any other problem like that? My husband was reading an article about CFS & FM that said it could be related to MVP. Since my husband has had MVP since he was a child, we were wondering if anyone else had this?..Thanks for any input...

    a Aortic Valve leak. Don't know if those are closely related or not.

    Hope this helps, Teresa

    I have MVP. Was diagnosed 2 1/2 years ago after years of being told I was having panic attacks. Grrrrmmph!!!!. Bit like this FM. It was supposedly in my mind until I got the right specialist. Correct medication settled the erratic heart beats almost straight away. Was told I would need surgery within 2 years but so far so good. Was also told it is hereditary (yes my mother had it) and it is mostly passed on to daughters. I have found it interesting to read about how many have both MVP and FM. Love Ozgran.

    For all the responses..Hearing from people with the same problems always seems to make you feel less crazy or paraniod. :)
