My mum has heart murmur, kindly suggest her

On christmas day my mum was taken to hospital with chest pain and the docs found she had a heart murmur and have refered her for a heart scan next week. She has a doctors appointment tonight to discuss what happened and I have concerns that she has quite a stressful job which involves quite a lot of lifting. Should we mention this to the doctor or are we overreacting ? My mum is only 56 Thx Clarabella I ve suggested she pack the job in but she likes being active. Each wednesday she has to sort around 150 charity bags lifting etc and I think its too much

the type of the murmur should be established with the cause.sometime stress and hard work can cause serious conditions because of the murmers.Murmers are usually because a heart ot a large vessel valve does not open or close should do mention it to the doctor,and I believe that if you dont mention it he will ask her.
