Heart murmur in morning

Common Questions and Answers about Heart murmur in morning


Avatar n tn Hello. I am a 20 year old male. I have a Littmann Cardio. 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 f tn I'm 25 I was diagnosed with a heart murmur when I was 3.I never had symtpoms till now I feel tierd all the time and the other day I was playing basketball and my heart started beating fast and I ran out of breath it took me a while to catch my breath again.
Avatar m tn Well, I figure I should just keep on writing.... My daughter was recently diagnosed with a heart murmur that gets better upon standing but is significant when lying down. She is 3 years and 5 months old and has never been diagnosed with this in the past. She also doesn't seem to get overly tired when playing. I'm kind of freaking out about it.
Avatar f tn The doctor heard a heart murmur and I have another apt in a week to get it evaluated. I have been doing a lot of research online and I found a lot of info but what I keep finding that in adults, a new murmur is likely to be abnormal. I have been trying to find statistical information to see if I am likely to have an innocent murmur or an abnormal murmur. I am 30 years old, and I have no health problems. Only migraines that I recently started having.
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 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 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 n tn My son has Ltga and recently had an ablation for SVT Prior to the ablation, even the morning before the procedure, his records state clearly "no murmur". The morning after the procedure he had a grade 3/6 systolic murmur. That was 3-4 weeks ago. The murmur is unchanged. Is this something we should get checked out or is this a normal occurrence after a long ablation procedure. Am just concerned as this was new after the ablation.
Avatar f tn Chris had open heart surgery when he was 3 months and is now 4 1/2 years old. he still has a 1/6-2/6 murmur but is an innocent murmur now. just a word of caution. fevers and running can cause the murmur to be louder so let say your ittle one has a grade 1/6 murmur and he gets sick and your doctor says he can hear a grade 2/6 murmur please don't worry like I freaked. no one told me fevers can cause the murmur to be louder.
Avatar n tn ALL babies are born with a heart murmur caused by a hole in the heart which usually closes up on it's own during the first year of life. Those types of murmurs are called Functional Murmurs and are nothing to be concerned about. Some babies have structure problems with the heart where different types of murmurs can be heard; those babies often times require surgery. The doctor is the best judge on whether or not the problem cna 'wait' or needs immediate attention.

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 m tn Heart murmur is still there and it hurts when she plays basketball and sometime when she is doing anything.
491828 tn?1305319780 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 f tn If the doctor reacted by listening a bit harder, ordering some follow-up tests, and suggesting alterations in lifestyle, then the murmur is more pronounced and will need to be monitored closely. In young children, it is not uncommon to have a pronounced murmur correct itself over time.
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 My questions can a heart murmur just develop in a 12 year old or should it have been detected before. She had lymes disease about 4 years ago and was treated with antibotics, is that a factor. Also she drank caffinated beverage before going to the exam and was extremely nervous because she hates goning to the doctors. Also she was about to start her period, could that have played a factor. We are so upset about this can you please offer some help or advice. We are going to the cardio next week.
Avatar n tn I've had a murmur for decades and never experienced any heart pain.
Avatar n tn I believe most heart murmur conditions are caused by a leaky valve or chamber wall. In the case of the wall, I think that is the type murmur that people can "grow out of", i.e., as the child grows the heart leakage grows shut. I have never seen anyone comment on physical trauma causing a heart murmur. I would guess there is no correlation to the accident you describe and you having a murmur.
Avatar f tn Went to the vet and toto has a heart murmur and jack may have something terrible.
Avatar f tn I am an 18 year old female and since i was a child I have had a heart murmur, this has never bothered me until a couple of months ago. Recently I have been experiencing pain in my chest as though someone is stabbing me constently and with it, my chest becomes tight and i struggle to breathe. This can happen both when doing physical activity and when relaxing. I am constently on the go and until experiencing this pain was always active playing lots of sport.
469720 tn?1388146349 Early Warning Symptom for the #1 Killer of Women Is Under-recognized Heart disease is the #1 killer of women in the United States. Peripheral arterial disease (PAD)-clogged or narrowed arteries in the legs-is a red flag that the same process may be going on elsewhere because PAD is associated with other life-threatening vascular diseases. Through early detection, interventional radiologists can save women from future stroke, heart attack, and early death.
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 n tn I could be nothing or it could be something. My daughter was born with a heart murmur and she ended up having two holes in her heart. Fortunaly hers were small enough and she did not have to have surgery. I had a friend whos daughter had the same thing and she ended up having to have open heart surgery. They will probably refer them to a pediactic heart specialest where they will do an echocardiagram (sonogram on the heart) to see whats going on and what they need to do about it.
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...
