Heart murmur sounds

Common Questions and Answers about Heart murmur sounds


187666 tn?1331173345 I know I have a heart murmur, had it as long as I can remember. Recently my PCP said she thought it was getting worse. Had my echo today, very cool test and it's been 12 years since my last one. From the outside my heart is pretty standard sounding: whoosh-thump. Today with the magic of technology LOL it sounded more like flippity-snap, flippity-snap. Would they consider that a murmur or just my valves flapping around?
Avatar n tn Anyway, my question is 1) Does a pacemaker change the heart sounds in any way? I swear that when I listen w stethoscope at about the level of the sternal notch (where I think the RT ventricle would be) it almost sounds like a murmur-not a rub- but I don't think I've ever heard this in my heart before. My first f/u appt is Wed. the 10th of this month. I would appreciate your opinion on this as it will influence whether or not I request an earlier appt.

Avatar n tn Left ventricular systolic function is normal with an ER of 55-60% Left ventricular size is normal. Left atrium is normal in size and function. Mitral valve is normal. Mild mitral regurgitation is present. Aortic valve is trileaflet and appears structurally normal. Mild tricuspid regurgitation is present. About a month after the miscarriage, no murmur was heard during my normal exam. I am now pregnant again and the murmur is back.
Avatar f tn For the last 4 months my heart rate has been in the mid to low forties most of the time. I am on three different medications for hypertension and heart arrthymia. I will feel dizzy and very tired. A week ago I had carpul tunnel surgery and could not be given a IV sedative because my heart rate was too slow and the doctor was concerned. I was given IV atropine to try and speed it up, my heart rate never went above 55.
Avatar n tn Well, yestertday my son stayed after school to get his sports physical and during that time we were told that the doctor hear a heart murmur. Now this makes me feel like a awful parent because during fall ball Andrew complained of a chestpain and said he just felt different. I just thought he maybe over worked himself and gave him some cold water and told him to take a break. He has never complained of anything else but I still feel awful. How common are these heart murmurs?
Avatar n tn I am 52 yesrs old and just learned I have heart murmur. Please give me some information about this. Is strenuous exercise dangerous?
Avatar n tn Heart murmurs are abnormal sounds caused by valves in the heart; the doctor hears these when he listens to your chest with a stethoscope. The murmur itself is due to turbulent blood flow, usually around a narrow, leaky or damaged valve. As it is a sound, a murmur is generally not felt by the patient, either in the chest or elsewhere in the body.
Avatar m tn All this to say my doctor told me to see a Cardiologist because he said i have a heart murmur. 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 f tn Heart murmurs are common in children, and most of them are innocent or benign in nature with no underlying heart probelms. They can be heard at many different phases of growth, especially between the ages of 2 and 6 years. If a doctor hears a new murmur, they often recommend a pediatric cardiology consultation to make sure the murmur does not fall into the category of a pathologic murmur that might represent a structural heart issue.
Avatar n tn Posted By Heidi on June 04, 1999 at 20:31:08 When I was two I was diagnosed with an innocent heart murmer. At the age of four when I stopped gaining weigh and became short of breath often I was taken to see a pediatric cardiologist. I was told that I had developed a hole in my heart the size ofd a dime. We found out in September and they wanted to due surgery by December. I only weighed 32 pounds. They wanted my to get to at least 40, but I couldn't.
Avatar n tn Hi I'm a 28 year old white American LPN, not overweight, working in humanitarian relief in Africa. I started noticing about 4 months ago that my heartbeat felt unusually strong at certain times, as if it were overcompensating for a certain level of stress of activity, and quite often I will feel rather SOB.
1303813 tn?1303159362 Well first I don't understand how seeing a doctor would result in loss of employment, or for that matter that the employer would even know - don't tell. There is really nothing you can do that is better than get your partner in to see a doctor. You are listed as in the UK, so medical care is provided by your government, right? Thus, the cost should not be a consideration if one is looking for reasons not to do the correct thing. You mention murmur, and I wonder how that is known.
1401138 tn?1280788265 I am a 54 year old female. I have known for several years that I have a heart murmur. I saw a new doctor on Friday and she advised me that I have two heart murmurs. Is this common? Is it anything to be concerned about? I am scheduled for a stress test on Thursday. Thanks for any information.
320155 tn?1193927907 The doctor listened to my heart and then he told me it sounds like a heart murmur. then they gave me a ekg i think thats what its called and i guess it came out normal but i guess he said the graph has some little parts in it that isnt right. Couple of the lines were supposed to be up and one of them were down or something and there was another line that wasnt right. So im going to the hospital and gonna take a echocardiology test.
Avatar m tn The only other heart murmur that follows this pattern is the murmur of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. A MVP murmur can be distinguished from a hypertrophic cardiomyopathy murmur by 1) the presence of a mid-systolic click which is virtually diagnostic of MVP, and 2) the fact that hand grip maneuver intensifies the murmur of MVP[citation needed] and diminishes the murmur of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.

Avatar f tn Went to the vet and toto has a heart murmur and jack may have something terrible.
Avatar n tn Recently I visited my PCP for a routine visit to be told that I have a heart murmur. In addition I was told that I had a low heart rate (62) and an enlarged heart. I am in the process of arranging an appointment with a cardiologist. Reading around the topic on the web I get the impression that an enlarged heart is bad news - is that the case or could it be due to my level of exercise ? Thanks in advance.
306245 tn?1244384967 Sounds like a murmur. Heart murmurs can be whoosh (like mine), clicks, purrs, gallops. If you google heart murmur and look at the descriptions under the choices, there's a couple that have sounds you can hear. Pretty interesting and cool. They label them according to the valve involved or problem.
