Signs and Symptoms
People often can have mild or moderate mitral regurgitation without any signs or symptoms. As the condition worsens, people can develop:
- Heart murmur
- Shortness of breath — especially when lying down
- Swollen feet or ankles
- Heart palpitations
- Chest pain
Please call your provider if you have any of these symptoms.
Teamwork among patients, providers, valve teams, and nurses can help manage your valve condition.
