Heart murmur and palpitations

Common Questions and Answers about Heart murmur and palpitations


Avatar m tn Is the fact that I have palpitations and rapid heart beats sometimes almost a guarantee of a valve problem, or some other heart problem? Does anyone have these symptoms and have a healthy heart? I'm very nervous. I walk my dog everyday and I'm only about 10 pounds overweight. I am 24 years old.
806962 tn?1238182547 a heart murmur from the younger days can stay for a while, so you have been experiencing heart problems? like what exactly? have you seen a doctor?
Avatar n tn I have heart palpitations and sinus tach. My doctor says I am fine. I had an echo and 24 hour a little over a year ago the 24 hour said "mostly normal monitor with exception of PVC's and sinus tach that may be during driving or precipitated by excercise" the echo said "EF at 58% with slight mitral regurgitation some not visable".

Avatar n tn I am a 20 y/o female, that often experience heart papilations. I have a heart murmur and a slight leaky valve, the doctor couldn't find out what it was caused from she just said I am extremely sensitive. Most people have what I have and do not feel their heart fluttering or skipping beats but I do because I am extremely sensitive.
Avatar f tn I have also been told I have a slight murmur. It usually only lasts a few seconds but sometimes will come and go until I change positions. Anyone have an idea if I should be worried?
Avatar f tn Dont be surprised if there is Mitral Valve regurgitation as I have had it for years and a heart murmur (at birth) which was 'innocent' until my thyroid problems started. Anyone with a thyroid disorder should have yearly checks with a Cardiologist...its just standard routine.
Avatar n tn ) I wasn't feeling well and when I get dehydrated, here come the palps and the pvcs...UGH! My heart murmur was so loud I was a little worried. I mentioned to the doctor that I have my very own "swoosh." Thanks again! Have a great day!
Avatar f tn I had heart palpitations rarely prior to pregnancy and I figured they are anxiety related but I had them more yesterday and recently so I was just curious. None today. Thanks ladies for ur responses.
Avatar f tn My doc told me to drink one with monitor on and I did this am, about an hour and half later my heart was going crazy. So that will be the last one I drink. I turn my monitor in today and have app with doc Monday. No Friday appointments :( I will let yall know what they say. Will try not to freak out till then. Thanks.
Avatar n tn She already told me there is nothing wrong with my heart and every get palpitations but I can't accept that answer especially after getting the v-tach results years ago (1996).
Avatar n tn Since then, I've had 2 EKGs from two different doctors and they both assured me my heart is fine and palpitations are "normal". For the past year or so, I haven't been bothered by them at all, but now, 2 days ago, they started up again. This has been the third straight day and my heart's been flopping and fluttering almost continuously. In fact, my chest now even feels somewhat sore, like when you've overworked a muscle. Does anyone else feel this? This is more than an annoyance...
Avatar n tn The palpitations feel like my heart actually stops for a second and I can feel it in my hands and head and then it feels like I am hit in the chest really hard. Are other people palpitations so hard like this???? Thanks.
Avatar m tn My dad has arrythmias in which his pulse increases and he has been diagnosed with an enlarged heart and was born with a heart murmur. He is overweight and has high blood pressure. I've had 2 EKGs, a chest X-ray, blood tests, and an echocardiogram done. The EKG showed I was having PVCs. All the other testing came back normal. I was officially diagnosed with benign PVCs. They occur about twice a week. They can occur when I'm stressed, after a night of heavy drinking, or after working out.
Avatar n tn I have been to see a cardiologist and have had a echocardiography which was normal and also a 24 hour monitor which showed that I got isolated atrial ectopic beats and ventricular ectopic beats and was also told I have a flow murmur. I was told this was nothing to worry about and is normal but I do worry that it could progress into something more in the future. Can you please tell me if this is correct and if this cause problems for me in the future? Thank you, Natalie.
Avatar n tn I listened with my stethoscope and immediately heard a loud, probably systolic murmur. Her pulse is normally around 60 and at this time was at 86. Within 2 minutes this murmur was completely gone and she was feeling normal again. She sees her OB GYN and Internist on a regular basis and no one has mentioned a murmur before. Is this likely to be an innocent episode?
Avatar n tn The doctors have always said my pain was anxiety or heart burn or muscle strain. They have never mentioned a heart murmur before, and my chest pain has never been this bad before, either. Another thing I should mention....my mother died three weeks ago of lung cancer, and it's been a very difficult time for me. I haven't been feeling well in general, and I recognize that my grief is probably to blame, in many aspects.
Avatar f tn I have been to the doctors and they said they couldn't hear the murmur at present, but they think it's a heart murmur which comes and goes. I have had a test done and they said that the heart murmur is caused by a leaky heart valve, Could the pain in my chest be caused by the leaky heart valve and is it anything to worry about?
Avatar n tn About 5 years ago I developed a heart murmur. My doctor ordered an echocardiogram at the recommendation of a cardiologist. The results were: ejection fraction of 65%, mild mitral valve regurgitation, mild mitral valve prolapse and mitral valve thickening. Now when I listen to my heart I can tell the murmur has gotten worse. My symptoms are hard to describe, but here goes. At times I can actually hear the murmur and feel my heart "squeezing" blood flow, almost like water from a sponge.
Avatar n tn Sometimes a heart murmur can be indicitive of other problems. I have a heart murmur which turned out to be a leaky mitral valve. Most of the time a leaky mitral valve isn't a problem unless it is a severe case which can sometimes warrant heart valve replacement. That is probably why your paperwork wasn't signed off. They may just want to make sure that it isn't related to a bigger problem.
Avatar n tn Emergency surgery required. Unfortunately, now my heart muscle is damaged and I now have diastolic heart failure. I am also told, there is no such thing as an innocent murmur. He may be ok now, but I'd have a cardiologist check your son annually. Isn't it interesting that they seem to keep missing the women.
Avatar f tn I also have pain in both my armsa nd shoulders, but I feel it more in my left arm and shoulder, and at times I feel the pain in my left side of my face. My doctor said that I have a heart murmur and I am scheduled for an echocardiogram next week. My question is: Will the heart murmur go away? Also, I play Rugby, will the heart murmur interfere with Rugby? Thank you for your time.
909086 tn?1242664364 After reviewing all of the tests, the cardiologist said that I had a perfectly healthy heart, and that the palpitations were most likely a result of hypothyroidism. For the first few months after being on the Levothyroxine, I can honestly say that I did NOT feel any better. However, over the past 6 - 8 weeks, I have begun to feel more like my old self again.
Avatar f tn I'm just wondering why you are using a stethoscope unless trained to know what to listen for, and exactly where to place it. Most heart murmurs are harmless. I can't imagine a heart murmur coming and going, murmurs are usually due to valve problems and will remain. If your Doctor has listened, and hears no abnormalities, I would go with that.
Avatar f tn The test will assess the degree of regurgitation (leakage) of the valve and the leakage can be caused by the leaflets not fully closing the valve opening when the heart pumps blood into the body system and blood flows back into upper heart chamber. Many people have mild leakage and heard on stethoscope, and that condition is not considered medically significant and almost always will not progress, and there are no limitations on lifestyle.
Avatar f tn i am a 36 yr old mother of 4, anxiety and stress problems, experiencing persistant heart palpitations and anxiety, pounding heaRT episodes. some during or after meals. no matter what im doing. lying down, sitting, working...this stops me from a lot of activities. very sad most of the time due to these episodes. have had stress test in 2008 at clev. clinic. history of murmur and mvp just recently said i have mvr as well. large goiter said to b possibly pressingon nerves in neck.
898107 tn?1241753138 As I look back I can remember times when he would be running around and then just stop and put his hand on his chest over his heart. I asked him if he was ok and he would say say yes and continue playing. Also he has been complaining about his legs hurting which I thought was because he ate too many bananas, but when I cut down how many he ate he still complained about his legs every once and awhile. Can these be systems of poor blood flow?
Avatar n tn I am 49 (turn 50 next week) and they knew from birth that I had a heart murmur. At 14, they did further testing. To this day, I still have not had to have heart surgery. Right now, I am on medication. (How old are you?) Your EKG can change over time, due to a number of things. Were any of your EKGs done while you were exercising? I have probably had 20 EKGs over the past 35 years and the only one that ever was "abnormal" was when they had me exercise on a treadmill.
