Our expert says:
Thanks for your query. Blood pressures taken when people are not feeling well are not the best blood pressures on which to base a decision about chronic treatment. However, you have now been thoroughly assessed since then.
The echocardiogram report indicates thickening of the anterior mitral valve leaflet and mild “MR”, which means mild mitral regurgitation, ie a mild leak of the mitral valve. “Thickening”, like beauty, is often in the eye of the beholder and it certainly does not sound like anything to worry about, especially as it is an incidental finding.
Without more information I can’t really tell you why you should feel dizzy while walking, but if you are taking medication to reduce your blood pressure bear in mind the possibility that the dizziness could be an effect of the treatment. If you are still on medication please discuss the symptom with the doctor who prescribed the medication.
Best wishes, JT
