Common Questions and Answers about Heart murmur jogging

17198695 tn?1454510153 When one of your 4 heart valves do not close completely this backward flow happens. Heart murmur from valve leakage is quite common. Often the mitral valve is involved. The amount of leakage is categorized as none/trace/mild/moderate/severe. A lot of people have some leakage and as long as the leakage is mild or less, there is not really a reason for worry and there is no reason to limit your physical activities. In many cases this leakage will remain stable throughout people life.

Avatar n tn A fellow student at my university, 30, recently passed away after a heart attack caused from an enlarged heart. I am now wondering if I might have 'athlete's heart' and if I ought to stop exercising for a while (although I did this the first month after my heart starting playing up)? It has also crossed my mind that I am rather skinny, and that a lack of body fat coupled with a hard training regime might have something to do with it. Has anyone had any similar experiences?
Avatar m tn He he performed the stethescope though (june 1st) he did hear a SLIGHT heart murmur but quickly regarded it as my heart being strong (rated it as 1 out of 6). Ive never had a murmur problem so it scared me a little when he told me that, so he had orded me an echocardiogram for me which I just had finished on June 22nd. the results for that came back NORMAL. the Ejection fraction was 60%.

Avatar n tn In regard to your questions, I was born with a bicuspid aortic valve and was told all my life (until age 50!) that I had a heart murmur that was nothing to worry about and I would probably outgrow it. Since I have always otherwise been healthy, as an adult my doctor appts have been very limited to the ordinary routine. I moved to a new town and a new OB GYN commented on the murmur and suggested I get a new internist and have some overall work-up.
Avatar n tn All sorts of machines were alternately used on me while in ER, including X-Ray, and ultrasound. Only a minor heart murmur found. I was admitted into Garden Grove Hospital, while an EP doctor (Kelly Tucker) prepared more paperwork for me to be transferred to St. Joseph Hospital. I did not remember how viles of blood were drawn, and how many tests were done on me at GG hospital. All come back excellent. I were transferred to St Joseph after 1.5 days at GG hospital. Dr.
Avatar n tn I wonder if it has something to do with the low blood pressure? Mine is often 100ish/56-65. I also have a heart murmur, so I thought maybe the machine was picking up on that.
Avatar n tn In addition to a heart murmur (not the serious type), I have quite a history of irregular heart beats. I go through periods when the irregularities are enough to cause me alarm, to times when there are no irregularities. In five years, I was tested on a treadmill with very good, almost identical, results. The last test was about 1 1/2 years ago.I also had ultrasound tests about 4 years ago, no problems detected.

Avatar n tn hi im a 19 yr old male just few days ago my drocter told me i have a heart murmur and sense then my heart seems to be beating harder i was woundering if that could just be in my head but also i would like to know the effects of smokin marijuana with a heart murmur
Avatar f tn Does anyone have more details on this. I'm suffering the same symptoms. Rocking head which I now think is swaying to my heart beat. I can constantly feel my beating heart except when I'm keeping busy. Going crazy worried. I've just had a blood test and booked for an echo in 2 weeks because of heart murmur...currently taking multivitamins plus magnesium flakes in water plus iron supplement. Always cold too so I think I'm low in iron..
Avatar n tn Posted By Susan on April 03, 1999 at 20:17:12: Hello, Five weeks ago I came down with a viral infection. Soon symptoms developed that at first included my chest feeling very weighted down, especially in the morning, almost as though my body wasn't strong enough to carry around it's upper half. After that subsided, symptoms remained for weeks, including constant, hard coughing up of clear mucus, and extremely labored breathing.
Avatar n tn _ Dear Susan (1) An S4 is not a heart murmur. (2) Heart murmurs are caused, by hundreds of different conditions, some benign, some serious. (3) An ECG by itself does not rule out heart disease, if the suspicion is high. (4) Only if you had significant heart failure. (5) It can indicate excess fluid in the body. If you do have heart failure, an echocardiogram would be able to diagnose it. I hope this has been useful. Feel free to write back with further questions. Good luck.
Avatar n tn Over a week ago for absolutely no identifiable reason my heart started skipping way more beats than usual. I can go hours with none and then have several hours where I'll have 2 or 3 a minute. It's setting me over the edge. I don't know if it's dangerous or not. I went to the ER the other day and they basically didn't care at all and just had me take Ativan and sent me home.
1091003 tn?1257713773 it wouldn't hurt to have a work-up by a cardiologist, more for peace of mind, but also to rule out the presence of a new heart murmur (which are very common), etc. They can do an echocardiogram, which looks at the heart structures via ultrasound.. An EKG looks at the electrical functioning of the heart...and they are very valuable in ruling out serious events, such as heart attacks, but there are other studies that can be valuable as well.
Avatar n tn So if I am the picture of health why is my heart rate always so high? My heart rate at rest is usually 103-115, jogging running 160-170, and sprint training is in the 180-185s. I can sing when I run. The doctor is sending me to a specialist because I have a heart murmur and hopefully this will all be straightened out. I don't really know what else I could possibly do to be healthier.
Avatar n tn Dear Robin, These episodes do sound like PVC's and i recommend a full follow up visit with your cardiolgist just to make sure that your murmur has not progressed or that you have developed significant valvular heart disease as a cause of these extra beats.
Avatar n tn At 3mnths old he had open heart surgery to close a rather large murmur that allowed blood flow where it wasn't supposed to flow. To understand it better I say he has a backwards heart, I was told with this condition he wouldn't be able to play sports, run around like all boys do, and be a normal kid. My question that I could never ask the surgeon is, "What is the life span of a child with these problems?
Avatar n tn It is important to know why the study was performed -- for example if you are having shortness of breath or leg swelling or bacause you have a strong family history of heart failure, this would suggest that there is some clinical heart failure to acompany the echo finding. Regardless, it is important to repeat the study in 3-6 months or if your symptoms change to assess for any changes in ventricular size.
Avatar n tn I saw my cardiologist back home and he tells me I have a heart murmur. Is that normal after surgery, and will it go away? Also how long should I wait before I start jogging again. I feel like I could jog but a little worried about blowing a line or messing up one of my coronary arteries.
Avatar n tn I did have a murmur when i was young and had an echo then about 15 years ago. Everyone that has listened to my heart since syas they no longer hear a murmur. Ive had 2 chest xr in the last 2 years and both were unremarkable. mas2782 comment about back pain did remind me that the chest pain i have will feel like its coming through my back at times.
Avatar m tn Since then I have taken it very easy since and moderated my exercise to jogging and cycling so that my heart rate is below 130 and normally below 120 and I feel OK and have jogged up to 10 miles walking when my heartbeat reaches the upper limit I have imposed I am waiting for a feedback from my consultant and a final test (exercise tolerance) but this may be delayed. I am told my condition is "not serious" (yet!
Avatar n tn daughter, Kate, has recently been diagnosed with BAV, mild stenosis and regurgitation. We actually went to the cardiologist because she complained of an irregular, fast heart beat during jogging, jumping rope. Cardiologist performed a stress test, which did not produce the typical effects of her exercising. Her heart rate reached 200. Doctor told us her sinus rhythm appeared to be normal. He said we would monitor her every six months, which I understand is typical.
Avatar f tn First off I wonder if your son is using being sick as an excuse for not going to school or church. Secondly, if he has had this 'problem' for the past 6 years it probably isn't all that serious. However as a concerned parent the best place for answers about your son is in the doctor's office for a physical exam.
Avatar n tn said I had some slight changes per my echo results, which to my understanding were increase in prolapse (but not in the amount of MR), The sound of the murmur also sounded alittle different. He would now like to follow me every 6 months with echos and has switched me to a different beta blocker. He also said to avoid "weight bearing" exercise. My question is: Does this sound reasonable? and does "weight bearing" exercise include gardening and landscaping? My Dr.
4348479 tn?1353192855 It is really getting to a stage where I gets really really annoying, I almost have to sit in bed at night trying to get some sleep coz of the chest complaints.. Oh, and btw, two docs said I had a heart murmur during auscultating my chest.. Thank you very much!
Avatar m tn A lack of red blood cells also means that your heart has to work harder to move oxygen-rich blood through your body. This can lead to arrhythmias (irregular heartbeats), a heart murmur, an enlarged heart, or even heart failure.
Avatar n tn I am an otherwise healthy, active individual who recently found out that the heart murmur I have had all my life has turned ugly. I have what my cardiologist calls serious aortic stenosis, possibly 75-80% progressed to needing valve replacement. I do have symptoms of periodic shortness of breath, dizzy spells, fatigue, periodic cough, occasional chest "pain" or discomfort, and chest "flutters" and "thumps" all the time.
Avatar m tn Be very careful when you do any form of excercise or a rise in your pulse rate that will cause you to have a PVC or PAC! After doing much research this can be a portend of something not being right with your heart. They all say that "in the structure of a normal heart"....they never ever mention BUT pay particular attention with excercise. Cardios' always omit that tiny little word that can cause all sorts of problems.
