I was diagnosed with Mitral Valve regurgitation w/o prolapse over a year ago. I was placed on 50mg of Atenolol per day. Since that time I have continued to have chest pain that radiates to my jaw (almost evertime) as well as my back and shoulder (some of the time) . I had about two and half months last year where I did not have pain. I have been to my regular gp every few months and explained the on going pain. I was told that was just part of my condition and something I'd have to live with. I'm no expert but something seems off. I made an appointment with a cartiologist for this friday. I'm really afraid they are going to find something worse, but at the same time I'm afraid they are going to tell me the original diagnosis was right, and I'm just shit out of luck. Has anyone experienced anything similiar to this?
