|I was diagnosed with a Mitral Valve Prolapse in my late 20's (prone to unexplained blackouts on occasion, once actually driving - though only minor vehicle damage) and no deteriorating symptoms till today at age 64.|
Otherwise healthy, fit, exercise regularly without restraints, eat right etc.
Had stomach issues around 40, Doc wanted to put me on Prevacid for the rest of my life. Screw that. Glad I did. Turns out that and Prilosec used long term cause heart valve damage. All it really took was to eat better
and get proper sleep - in a more upright position.
Although I never say never but IMO a pill is almost never the solution. It is a bandaid. A bandaid that can sometimes do more harm than good.
