    Heart Issues?

    Hello all,

    Do any of you have heart issues such as Mitral Valve Prolapse and/or Bicuspid Aortic Valve? I have both of these and wonder how much of my fatigue is attributable to Hypothyroidism as opposed to the previously known issues. Any thoughts are welcome.

    Wes

    Re: Heart Issues?

    Sorry Wes, I have no experience of this. Maybe join a heart forum, as well as this one, for more experienced people who can help you further.

    I know Hypothyroidism, can cause heart disease if left untreated. I had sky high cholestral, and once commenced on a higher dose Thyroid replacement my levels became good again!!

    Fingers crossed you get better soon thumbup

    Re: Heart Issues?

    for the replies.

    Ric, I am a member of a forum related to the aforementioned heart issues and have learned a lot about them. In reading about hypothyroidism, I found out that when compared to the general public that a higher percentage of "hypo" people also have Mitral Valve Prolapse. So, basically I asked the initial question out of curiosity. Fatigue is a symptom of a myriad of health conditions and, for those with multiple health factors I'm sure it can be difficult to pinpoint the culprit of the fatigue.

    for the well wishes also!
