Overview

Sharon Anderson explores Mitral Valve Prolapse, a syndrome that has puzzled many for decades, and sheds light on a disease that affects so many and is addressed too little. The symptoms of the disease are not dissimilar from those of other ailments: palpitations, fainting, fatigue, shortness of breath, migraine headaches, chest pain, episodes of extremely rapid or irregular heartbeat, dizziness and lightheadedness. This makes diagnosing this disease more challenging, but Anderson explains why this disease should not go unnoticed. In her comprehensive study, she reveals the facts about this disease in hopes to help others prevent the complications associated with it.
