Our expert says:
I strongly suggest a cardiologist as soon as possible. Please read more about your condition, as it is complex and the SVT is most likely related to the Barlow's disease. Visit the following link for more information: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mitral_valve_prolapse
I do not think that the Lentogesic will alleviate your symptoms. A beta blocker is a much better choice in the interim but ultimately, the mitral valve will have to be replaced surgically. The cardiologist will be able to assist in the treatment of your condition after examining you and possible tests have been done.
