Hi Klutzo!!!! I saw your PS to me about heart pauses. Yes, I have had MANY tests done on my heart. I had an echocardiogram when I was 16 and another just in 2002, both were normal. I can't remember if I drank a lot of water at the time of the tests. I also had a stress test and I had to wear a 24 hour holter monitor in addition to numerous EKG's. All my tests were normal, (surprise surprise). But, I too, have often wondered about mitral valve prolapse and have asked my doctors about this, they kept telling me they don't hear a clicking sound and my tests are fine. For now, I don't want to worry too much about it since it seems to have improved over the years by making some changes. I thank you for responding and value your opinion a lot. Thanks, Klutzo. Take care, Hugs Chelz.
