Do people feel pain with a leaky mitral valve?
My chest hurts where my heart is. I have a leaky mitral valve. Do people feel pain there?

Dear Kathy: Patients with mitral valve prolapse frequently have chest pain. This is as far as I can go without more information. Please talk to your cardiologist about your particular concerns.
