Heart murmur jogging

Common Questions and Answers about Heart murmur jogging


Avatar n tn 23:07: Another follow up question: 1) What kind of side effects are there with the anticoagulants? 2) How much of a normal life can one lead after a valve replacement? Can one, for example, hike in the mountains and go jogging?
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 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 n tn 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 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 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 f tn Went to the vet and toto has a heart murmur and jack may have something terrible.
Avatar n tn I have an 18 month old son who was born with a heart condition. L-TGA and also still to this day has heart murmurs. 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.
Avatar n tn I've had a murmur for decades and never experienced any heart pain.
Avatar f tn I have open heart 4 years ago they replaced 5 arteries I went for my yearly check up and now have a heart murmur is this normal to get so long after surgery and can the murmur be why I am sleepy all the time
Avatar f tn I do not know of any relationship between a heart murmur and weight gain, or chest pain. I believe many people have heart murmur and it is not dangerous. I think most case are just monitored, perhaps even echocardiograms every few years to get an accurate measure on how the heart and all its valves are working. A murmur can also be caused by a leakage between heart chambers, which I believe are usually left untreated.
Avatar n tn I recently had a pre-op physical and the Dr. not my normal Dr. picked up a heart murmur. I have had a history of SVT and on Atenalol.
Avatar f tn Most murmurs can only be heard with the assistance of a stethoscope. A murmur may be heard in a normal heart, and may not necessarily caused by a structural defect in the heart itself. Murmurs may also be the result of various problems, such as narrowing or leaking of valves, or the presence of passages between chambers of the heart. Elevated blood pressure may not be related to the murmur.
Avatar n tn No, it's not bad news. It's good news that this was found and that you can get it checked out. A lot of people have heart murmurs that are considered "benign;" in other words the heart murmur doesn't mean anything and won't hurt the person. The reason for you to see a cardiologist is to make sure that's all it is. Probably you will go once and not need to go back.
Avatar n tn I recently went in for my yearly exam and the doctor mentioned i had a heart murmur. I've read a lot of articles on the web and they all seem to agree that this can be caused by certain sicknesses or diseases, or you have it from birth. My question is if i havent had any of these diseases or conditions and havent had a "heart murmur" show up in the past, should i be concerned?
Avatar f tn All babies are born with a heart murmur and that murmur usually closes by the time a child turn 12 months.
162489 tn?1189755831 I took my cat to the vets today for his annual booster vaccinations and a general checkup. The vet noticed that he has a heart murmur and that he needs to go for an ultrasound. Can anyone tell me if having a murmur will affect the quality of his life. He is only 4 yrs old and is a lively and loving cat. I'm so worried about him. Is a heart murmur a very serious problem?
Avatar f tn I just got told that my one year old has a heart murmur why all the sudden how come they didnt find it when he was born.?well my question is Can heart murmurs come out of no way??
Avatar n tn I have a 15 month old daughter. Very active, very healthy, growing and developing just fine. A slight heart murmer was detected 12 months ago, and the doctor's advice was to come back in 12 months for evaluation. The murmur is more pronounced now, and has been called a "flow murmur". We have an appointment made at the Childrens Heart Clinic. What can I expect? What should I ask? What is a "flow murmur"? Thanks!
Avatar n tn If a child has a heart murmur, and grows up and becomes an athelete (football player), can the murmur cause his death?
