Child having heart murmur, increased heart rate, pounding heart. Also, burps a lot. Linked to heart murmur?

My 6 year old son has a heart murmur . It went from being classified as a 1 to a 4. Also he is having issues with his heartrate going up and a feeling of his heart pounding (which we can feel when we put our hands on his chest ) he has started burping a lot lately. Could that be linked to the fast heartrate or heart murmur?

Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

Burping has no obvious relation to heart disease.
Difficulty in feeding and thriving have.

Loudness of a murmur is not related to its seriousness.
Fast rate and murmur are often from the same problem.

An ECHOcardiogram could help in change of cardiac status, from the past.

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
