Question analysis: Hello, from the described condition and the uploaded examination results, people have chest tightness and shortness of breath. Consider hyperthyroidism and tachyarrhythmia, and then consider the compression symptoms caused by goiter. Degeneration of the aortic valve only causes mild regurgitation and moderate mitral regurgitation. You can take medication first.
Guidelines: It is best to go to the endocrinology department of the hospital for further treatment. For thyroid color Doppler ultrasound examination, follow the advice of clinicians and receive regular treatment. It is recommended to have a 24-hour dynamic electrocardiogram. If there is a tachyarrhythmia, you can take oral antiarrhythmic drugs and treat symptomatically.
