Heart murmur causes blood pressure

Common Questions and Answers about Heart murmur causes blood pressure


Avatar n tn Can car accident trauma cause a heart murmur? My blood pressure was also high. 117/98 - it's never been that high.
Avatar f tn My doctor found the heart murmur though the stethoscope and I have to get an echocardiogram done to makem sure it doesn't become serious.
Avatar n tn Murmmers are caused by turbulent blood flow moving through the heart. Any thing that effects the lood flow such as variations in blood pressure, changing positions or even holding your breath can change the sound of the murmmer. I wouldn't worry too much about the quality of the murmmer. There are better ways to evaluate the valve then through listening to the murmmer. In fact, some of the most harsh murmmers are caused by mild changes in the valve because they cause the most turbulence.
Avatar f tn I didn't mean system blood pressure. When the blood pumps (systole) there is internal pressure within the left chamber that causes mitral valve leaflets to "bellow" into the upper chamber and the improper closing causes a murmur and the sound is the backflow of blood . For some insight mitral valve prolapse is a common condition occurring in approximately 4 - 18% of the population.
Avatar f tn At a recent pre - op assessment (for shoulder surgery) I was found to have a heart murmur and the surgery has been postponed until I get an echocardiogram to see what's causing the heart murmur. Does anyone know if atrial fibrillation can cause a heart murmur to develop?
Avatar n tn When the lungs get sick pressure builds up in the blood vessels there and puts more work on the heart. This can create real problems if you have a murmur, depending on what exactly is causing the murmur. The worst case scenario would,be a murmur caused by a shunt.. Or congeinital hole in the heart. Lung disease from smoking in a patient like this can cause a condition called eisenmeingers syndrome. If you get this disease under such conditions you're pretty much a goner..
Avatar n tn When a heart is not efficiently pumping blood, the venous flow back into the heart gets backed up. This venous pressure causes fluid to seep into the abdomen (sometimes called ascites). Did your veterinarian give you any options? In order to correct this it most likely would cause open heart surgery, something that in a 9 week old kitten is both impractical and very expensive. There are some types of congenital heart disease that are "easier" than others. I.E.
Avatar n tn It's very possible IF blood pressure is causing the enlargement and there is a reduction in blood pressure. 3) How serious a condition is a "mild" enlargement and how "high" is BP of 130/90? The seriousness of your heart enlargement will depend on the cause. It needs followed. Normal blood pressure is 120/80 and below. Yours would be borderline or early stage hypertension. 4) my marathon running and work outs are fine, no fatigue, etc.
Avatar n tn Happy New Year Julie, I am 45 years old and your situation sounds like mine did. Just recently I had a physical and my EKG came out abnormal. I had an echocardiogram and had quite a bit of regurgitation(backwards blood leakage into the heart). My "heart murmur" would disappear and reappear throughout my younger years. I have been diagnosed with a bicuspid valve instead of a tricuspid valve and require surgery in the near future.
Avatar n tn That is the most definitive none-intrusive test I know of to determine the structural condition of the heart. It can measure the flow of blood throughout the heart, the size of chambers, the operations of all valves.. more I suppose. Given you had an ablation years back I assume you have had a echo in the past, but given your condition has worsened, I'd recommend doing it again.
Avatar n tn I had my first endo appt 10 days ago, and am waiting for bloodwork/urine follow up appt on 2/23. My blood pressure has been creeping up since I delivered my 2nd child 2 years ago, and when I was in the office it was 156/90 both at the beginning and end of the appt. She found that my thyroid is enlarged, and was concerned about my blood pressure rising, but wanted to wait until all the tests were returned before considering which medications were appropirate.
Avatar f tn I get pains every now and then from my heart, but I was born with a heart murmur and a hole in my heart. (That healed with time though) so I've never really payed attention to if I have a flutter. But I heard somewhere that they are pretty normal.
Avatar m tn By default, she has distinctly 'higher (heart) pulse rate' than normal human (but her 'blood pressure' is in the normal human's acceptable range). So here are my queries: 1) The consulted doctor's opinion is that she would have a 'shorter lifespan' (40~45 years in total). Can this be true ? 2) When she goes for run/jog, she sometimes experiences an acute pain in the left side of chest (maybe the heart location!). So, should she stop going for such runs ?
Avatar f tn My 16 yo son had a heart murmur at birth.We were told that it closed before his 1st birthday. 3years ago he fainted and then began to get migraine headaches after strenuous exercise. He also got lightheaded occasionally when standing. This past spring he really increased his exercise regime and got more migraines. An EKG was done but was read as normal. This fall he really increased his exercise and began to be extremely fatigued. In early October, he got a migraine and took Axert.
Avatar f tn The heart murmur needs to be fully evaluated with an echocardiogram. It could be a flow murmur, which could be innocent or a leaky valve murmur. If it a leaky valve murmur, there could be different clinical outcomes. So, please discuss this with your doctor am sure he will provide further assistance. Regards.
1674823 tn?1307267220 Its hard for me to accept I have pathological LVH given my other echo findings and the fact that in the ecg leads relevant for LVH voltage criteria the voltages have not increased between my no LVH ech in 2004 and my LVH echo in 2011 and yet the percentage vof echo 'increase ' in ventricular wall thickening was not marginal between those times I am told it has gone from below 12 to 13 .
Avatar f tn i do get short of breath especially when i begin and exercise or anything like that. I am also on blood pressure meds...100mg losartan/hctz 25mg...its been running around 140's/70. not sure what to do about it....hoping i can get it down im at a decent weight i exercise daily...and no smoking, caffene, or drugs in my life.
Avatar n tn What causes that, is there a large artery there that could be ear sensitive to blood flow/pressure? My blood pressure is just above borderline normal (145-150 / 90-95.
Avatar n tn I am a 24 year old female with good blood pressure and have pretty much been exceptionally health all my life. At birth the doctor discovered a murmur, in which he advised my mom that it would close on its own. I was very active as a kid but am now overweight (5" ft six1/2 inches and 210 pounds). I experience heart papitation and chest pains (which don't last more than a minute at a time) in which all or most are alleviated by a belch.
Avatar f tn When I see episodic changed in the blood pressures and spells I generally think of things like a pheochromocytoma which is a tumor of the adrenal gland, or a carcinoid tumor which secretes hormones that can cause blood pressure changes. The thyroid is not a bad place to look either. I would keep an exact log of your symptoms and blood pressure readins and share it with your physician.
Avatar n tn 15 year old Grandson had team physical for basketball today and could not pass due to heart murmur being detected and blood pressure 150/60 was referred to family physician. No symptoms. No previous problems with athletic physicals. Comments please... -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Dear Rex, Thank you for your question. A new heart murmur in a child can be due to a variety of conditions.
Avatar n tn When it's at its worst I feel pressure in my chest and back and some times the heart area. I did have a heart murmur when I was born and had some heart surgery when I was little. I have always thought it had to be something wrong in my digestive tract but maybe it could be heart disease. I'm desperate. Thank you for your help.
Avatar n tn I am 30 weeks pregnant and experiencing rapid heart beat, swelling of hands/feet, shortness of breath and a strange sensation/pressure in the middle of my back. My blood pressure is 110/60 and I am slightly anemic. I have been diagnosed with a systolic heart murmur so far. I went for a chest x-ray today and an echo next week. I was diagnosed 10 years ago with SVT's and for a short time was on Inderol and Tenormin. The symptoms went away and then a few years later returned.
Avatar n tn I was rushed to the ER, admitted. All the test cmae back normal, blood, EKG, Stress w/ heart xray. The Doctor told me that it could be artey spasms or Acid reflux. Anyway, I went about the week cautisously but active. Lifting weights, running, etc. The following week I had another espisode. I went to the ER- EKG and chest xray came back normal. I went home and took tylenol which seemed to relieve the pain. Becasue of this I thought I pulled a muscle in my chest and shoulder.
Avatar n tn Specialist said clinically the only thing he could find was a heart murmur that could be indicative. BNP level went from 14 to 80. He repeated the heart cath with exercise. Resting pressure was 30/8. Normal. He had me lift weights and had a hard time getting my heart rate up as I am taking beta blockers for tachycardia. Eventually he got my heart rate up to 110 and I stopped due to fatigue. It has been deemed normal. My questions are: If I don't have PH, should the heart murmur be investigated?
Avatar f tn like you, examinations showed no imminent arrest nor heart problems, although I do have a heart murmur so that made me scared when I felt the fluttering, like a bird was flying in my chest, along with choking sensation in my throat. These symptoms are classic Panic Attack. I was given various medications, such as Propanalol which calms and slows the heart rate, on a need to take basis. Then was prescribed Cipralex (Escitalapram) - a longer acting anti depressant effective for anxiety.
9258519 tn?1404472125 I know I should of seen a doctor straight away but we were away on holiday in a foreign country and I decided to wait till we got home. The doctor gave listened to my heart and said I had a heart murmur. The ECG turned out fine but my blood pressure is high and so to be sure I have been referred for an echo cardiogram and a cat scan. I am a very fit and active person but over the past month I have noticed an increased weakness in my arms.
Avatar n tn I told her my concerns about my blood pressure / pulse pressure but she said she has never heard the term pulse pressure and the difference between them is irrelavant. Is it worth me going to see another GP to get another opinion?
