Heart murmur in morning

Common Questions and Answers about Heart murmur in morning


Avatar n tn Stethoscope and I have noticed when I listen to my heart I can never hear my murmur unless it's in the morning. I am 100% positive about this. The murmur disappears during the day and returns most mornings. It is most audible at the mitral and apex area and I have been diagnosed with a bicuspid aortic valve. Any ideas why it only shows in the morning?
Avatar m tn Heart murmur is still there and it hurts when she plays basketball and sometime when she is doing anything.
491828 tn?1305323380 Hi, i am 19 years old and in Janurary i was diagnosed with a heart murmur. I was sent for a chest x-ray and had an E.C.G and the results came back normal. The reason this all came about was becuase i went to the doctors for dizziness which i still have now. I have had an ultrasound on my heart and nothing was picked up but my heart murmur. 3 months on and i am still dizzy, i think it could be my heart because sometimes my heart just beats really fast for no reason and then i get really dizzy.
Avatar m tn He asked if i was born with this I was not.... I do have chest pain feels deep in my heart especially in the morning when i awake. I already consulted last year for this and the doctor told me not to be alarmed it was probably a pulled muscle. Can anyone please help me understand about this heart mur mur? thank you.
Avatar n tn It seems that when I took her in Sept. 13 the pedi detected a heart murmur that he failed to tell me anything about. I told her that I wanted to speak with the doctor and she said he would call me back. About 15 min. later SHE called me back and said that he had detected a small murmur but was not worried about it and was going to monitor it the next couple of months that it was benign.
Avatar n tn Not everyone with a murmur has heart disease, in fact it is pretty rare, but it is important to evaluate. I would recommend refraining from exercise until he has a cardiac evaluation. Over all his risk is probably low, but there is no reason to take any chances. I don't know the numbers on how common murmurs are but I would guess greater than 5%. It depends on what the murmur sounds like and that is where experience matters. You should not feel badly.
Avatar n tn Also he was found to have grade 1 murmur. Can worms travel to his heart? Does the murmur put him at ahigher risk for complications? Is there anything I can do to help him pass stool? He still has an appetite and is drinking. Thanks in advance for any comments!
1077239 tn?1255836526 Monday afternoon, we took him back to the vet and he said that his heart murmur is between 4-5. He said that there is not much we can do about it. My husband is not willing to pay for him to have an specialist to take a look at my puppy. The vet said that the operation could fix his problem with his liver, but that his heart isnt good and there is maybe nothing that we can do because the 2 major organs of his body is shutting down.. I don't know what to do.
Avatar n tn My 4 year old son went to a new pediatrician for his annual physical. The doctor asked if anyone had mentioned that he had what's called an "innocent" heart murmur. He said it was nothing to worry about and that if we were ever asked if there was a history of heart murmurs on a medical form, we were not to check it (ex., dentist medical history form). I would like your opinion on his comments and his direction to not notify other health care professionals that it exists.
Avatar n tn June 2001, while at the hospital emergency room for a minor cut needing stitches, the Dr on call asked me how long I had this heart murmur...I informed her that I didnt have a heart murmur (I was 45 yrs old at the time)...She stated again that I did indeed have a heart murmur...At the time I just ignored it, believing that she made a mistake, didnt know anything about me or my medical history, and that if I had a heart murmur my Dr of 20 yrs would have told me about it...
Avatar n tn I had a chihuhahua that had a heart murmur for 10 years died at the age of 17 due to old age and other problems not heart.
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.
10821430 tn?1439584483 I read there is a blood test for heart problems pro BNP blood test but also read it will not show correct reading now as he was on heart medications HOW DO I FIND OUT IF HE IN FACT HAS HEART PROBLMS OR MURMUR??!
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 f tn She'll just need some time under the UV lights for the jaundice and will be good in no time. As for the heart murmur, a cardiologist will monitor it as she grows. Usually babies grow out of it or it can be something thats normal for her body.
Avatar n tn Therefore the Doc said that my heart was perfectly healthy, and I had a slight heart murmur. I was comforted by that until about six months ago, It seems like my heart is skipping alot of beats and leaves me short of breath. My question is this...is this all in my head? Can my heart mumur be the cause of my skipped heart beats? Or am I just imaging it all...and trying to see something that isnt there. Last night I woke up sweating, and I just sat there for a minute. then I felt my heart skip.
Avatar n tn But also it can be stress but just go to the doctor. a heart murmur is when your heart maybe leaking or even a hole in it and possibly death but it kind of depends!
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 n tn Dear Miche, A murmur is the term that we use when there is an extra sound in the heart. That sound is caused by turbulent blood flow in the heart or blood vessels. The turbulence can be normal or abnormal. Abnormal means that there is something structurally wrong with the heart, while normal means that we can just hear blood flowing through the heart normally.
Avatar f tn ) You wrote earlier that your son was lightheaded and dizzy in the morning, that is when they do GTTs, first thing in the morning before anything is eaten. Consider having this test done. People who have sugar issues have weakness, lightheadedness, dizziness, and can definitely have cognitive issues, mentally they can be in a fog. They can feel weak. They can certainly pass out. You can talk to them and they may appear pale, sweaty and 'not totally there'.
Avatar f tn I have irregular heart rate, rapid heart rate, diagnosed heart murmur and chronic shortness of breath (has these problems for five years). There are physical problems which were caused from repetitive trauma (that also resulted in severe PTSD with dissocative and panic symptoms). Are there any medications that I should be taking to treat the irregular heart rate? My heart rate jumps from 30 - 185 during regular exercise at the gym every morning.
Avatar n tn Given your young age it is very unlikely that what you are experiencing is a result of your heart. A murmur is an extra heart sound, if a doctor has not previously diagnosed you with a heart murmur it is unlikely that one is present. The diet you describe is probably not the most healthy diet and some of your symptoms may be the result of some gastrointestinal (stomach) problem. You may consider going to a family physician for a routine physical examination, ECG and cholesterol measurement.
Avatar n tn GP said this morning there are no other symptoms but the murmur which is 'clean' sounding, in that there is a low 'rub'-dub, rub-dub, rub-dub, the rub having that 'snow crunch' sound you mentioned though. I've heard the Rubbing sound of a Pericarditis and this is not at all like it. No PVCs or PACs showed on the ECG this morning, (hence, the 24 hour monitor) but I had at least a dozen of them which the machine failed to pick up. I don't understand that at all.
Avatar n tn If your potassium is low now, wait till you get pregnant! Leg cramps at night are common during pregnancy & due to Mom not getting enough potassium in diet as well as baby's head pressing on arteries & squeezing flow to legs. Eat bananas! Besides the vitamins & other good things about fruit, bananas are high in potassium & also help a queasy tummy early in pregn. I kept a banana & box of saltines by the bed.
Avatar f tn Why do i have these sweating spells like i am in the desert in the summer only i am the only one in the room that thinks it is hot. I am 42, married, F, mom, --- on paxil/zoloft for anxiety which usually work for the anxiety but not for this kind of stress......and 1000 mg metformin for IR...and I was on Yasmine birth control but my doc took me right off of that the other day. So my pcos symptoms are sure to return very soon. Anyway, i guess i did make this long. Sorry.
Avatar m tn However, I'm unsure of the risks when used by someone with a heart problem. Does a heart murmur add to the risk of pot use, and if so what is the seriousness of the risk?
Avatar f tn Keep those things under control and you may be able to keep the pacs at bay but they really are harmless in an otherwise healthy heart. Most anything in the atria is of less concern to doctors even if the heart has a minor valve problem. Keep up getting echos every 3-5 years to check on it but otherwise just work on your triggers and you should be fine. Take care.
Avatar f tn A few months ago doctors did a physical on me and said my heart and blood pressure seemed fine. One doctor said I had a slight murmur. My chest discomfort doesnt have me doubled over in pain or anything- it just feels delicate and odd and heavy, very stressed. I am so scared there's something wrong with me.
