I have been healthy all my life, recentkly I haver been having edema in my ankles so a few weeks ago I went for the f=irst time to an internal medicine dr. he said hears a heart murmur thru his stethoscope no dr ever told me that before and so a week ago i went for an echocardiogram and Monday a liver ultrasound (i have hep c) which I have not heard back about yet . what causes a murmur is it a serious thing? should I get another opinion. I don't like this dr, he won't do any meds for the edema except tell me to ear compression stcokingas I am NOT an old lady and don't wanna spend my summer in old lady stockings.
