It can cause chest pain, a racing heart and fatigue- but it's not a heart attack.
It affects mostly women and symptoms are often written off as "all in her head."

She wasn't having a heart attack...but she did have a problem with her heart.
A valve in the left chamber--called the mitral valve --wasn't closing properly--allowing some blood to flow backwards.

Having Mitral Valve Prolapse is rarely life threatening but if bacteria gets into the bloodstream and attaches to the heart valve it can cause serious problems so to prevent infection its' recommended that most women take antibiotics before surgery or dental work.
The exact cause of the problem is not known but many experts think it's hereditary.
Treatment usually isn't necessary but all women with MVP should get regular follow-up to make sure the problem isn't getting worse.

But last night, Studio-54 was packed remembering and dancing like it used to be.
Gloria Gaynor performed her disco classic "I Will Survive."
The event was sponsored by a radio station. Tickets were 200 dollars a piece and the profits benefit Aids research.
