  • Have you heard of a condition called mitral valve prolapse? Its a condition that can be very annoying when you are symptomatic and not diagnosed. I went to the ER and an internal medicine doctor several times before I finally went to a cardiologist. All of the tests showed normal results. When I wore the holter monitor I have bradycardia and trachardia (pardon the spelling), but the doctor didn't think anything of it. The cardiologist immediately diagnosed my condition because of the clicking noise. The echocardiogram also confirmed this. Do you have any other symptoms? Are they always at night? Could it be dietary? Are you stressed at all? Sometimes stress can manifest itself it your sleep.
