I have a heart murmur & some other symptoms which are getting worse.

I have a heart murmur that the doctor heard through the stethoscope and he said it sounds like a whooshing sound. I also still have chest and jaw pain, pain in both my arms and shoulders, and the left part of my face for quite some time. Also I noticed with the chest and jaw pain and the pain in both arms and shoulders, and left part of my face, when I take my pulse for a minute and each time my heart skips beats and sometimes I can feel a fluttering in my chest and other times a rapid heartbeat or a pounding heartbeat. My symptoms are getting worse. Cassie

whooshing murmur can be due to anything from a mild anemia to a much serious valve disease. You seem to be too anxious about your condition, a cardiologist will be able to give you definite answers which will giv rest to your mind.

the pain you have described is quite typical of myocardial infarction. and also if the murmur, the flutter you feel(called palpitation in medical terminology) are new onset these may be related to complications of myocardial infarction( commonly called heart attack). so you should immediately consult a cardiologist and get investigated including trop-I and ECG as initial investigation.
