Sara have you told your doctor about your worries? If his words are not enough you might be suffering from anxiety. You could have help with this maybe talking to a counsellor. You could also ask whether it would be OK for you to travel by plane. flowers

Palpatations are common with MVP according to my cardiologist, they can prescribe betablockers for it, i take Atenolol
When did you last have an ECHO?

So that is a beta blocker, anxiety will be making the palpitations worse, i have had them for over 30 years so know how awful they can feel.
