Ask a Texas Heart Institute Doctor
Informed patients make better patients.
What can I do for tension and anxiety? I also have concerns about mitral valve.
Respected doctor, this is Sakthi from India..my heart beat rate is 103.
I went to cardiologist. He took the echocardiogram. Doctor told to me
nothing to worry, all are fine, heart is in good condition. Because of
tension and anxiety only you have this heart beat rate. The treatment
for this is meditation and yoga, he said. But in the report they
mentioned sinus tachy and palpitation of mitral valve is mild. Is this
curable in tablets or will I need surgery? Palpitation of mitral valve
is mild and sinus tachy can affect heart functions in my future or
affect any other parts of the body? Please reply, Doctor. What are the
treatments I can take? Any physical exercise?

Thanks for the question. I do not know whether you have mitral valve prolapse or mitral
regurgitation. Please follow the advice of your cardiologist. Your
cardiologist can tell you whether you have these conditions after
reviewing the ECHOCARDIOGRAM of your heart. Please modify your stress
and anxiety which will help in sinus tachycardia. Please avoid caffeine
and alcohol and continue Yoga or other relaxation exercise.
