Dear Debbie, The link between the heart and the emotions has been described for thousands of years in religious writings and ancient medical texts.
Avatar f tn I took my 2 week old daughter to her 2 week check-up with her doctor and was told she had a heart murmur. The murmur was not picked up at the hospital. The murmur is only heard on the left side, but can be heard from the back and side as well and they said it was loud. The doctor also said that it was only heard on the systolic cycle. She has never been blue in her lips, she has a pulse in the femoral arteries and she eats fine.
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 f tn I think it is great you have learned how to listen to your daughter's heart. It sounds like a good sign that you aren't hearing the murmur now, but you can't count on that as meaning the VSD has completely closed. The echo will tell you that for sure and I'd expect that your MD would be glad to listen to your daughter's heart before then, if you wish. It is wonderful news that the VSD has reduced from 3.5 mm to 2 mm.
Avatar n tn My son has a murmur he is 4. my older son had a murmur also. with my older one I never knew he had a murmur until 2 years ago when his doctor said it was gone. (he is now 9) the base your murmur on a grade scale. Dr. H never told me what dillan's murmur was. When my youngest was born his wasa grade 6/6 meaning it was very loud. I could put my ear on his chest and hear the "sound" it was weird. almost like a ultrasound they do when your pregnant. a swooshing sound.
Avatar n tn Posted by Janice on April 16, 1999 at 15:15:16 I know that you can't diagnose here, but maybe you can help. I've finally caught a palpitation on the continuous heart monitor I was given. When I sent the report, the palpitation sounded like a short beat or missed beat, followed by two quick beats. Can you tell me if this is a PAC or PVC? I had an echocardiogram about two years ago that showed a slight heart murmur. At the time, I was having the palps infrequently.
Avatar f tn Went to the vet and toto has a heart murmur and jack may have something terrible.
Avatar n tn I've had a murmur for decades and never experienced any heart pain.
Avatar f tn Had a blood test, chest x ray and stethoscope examination. Everything came out great, except the doctor found an innocent heart murmur. Admittedly I was worried at the time. I was worried about the murmur part, but felt better when I found on the net that innocent means harmless. I had a ecocardigram anyway. The test came out great, I think the murmur had gone as well. I'm suffering from stress, and have been thinking about my heart rate a lot. I feel these strange heart beats.
1661682 tn?1313135396 I found out after I had my little girl I have a heart murmur. We didnt no this when I was pregnant before so it was left alone but I've experienced really bad palpitations in this pregnancy it seems to be getting worse. My brother has hypotrophic cardio miopathy (enlargement of the heart wall) meaning he had to have open heart surgery so they are keeping an eye on me incase mine goes the same way but I'm worried having this murmur will, cause problems in labour. What do you guys think.

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 I'm not sure Why you werent giving her The ANtibiotics for several days Prior to the extractions It sounds to me That The Dentist did What they felt was ok after the fact... I was recently given 3 500mg. amoxicillin a day for 6 days before an adult Pt. I dont know I was told warm salt water for the 1st couple days as well .
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 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?
