Will a doctor be able to acknowledge occasional heart murmurs even though i am not experiencing the same at that moment?

I have heart murmurs; but most oif the time when I go to the doctor; the doctor does not hear the heart murmur. I have pain in my heart which feels like a pin is being jabbed in my heart; this only last a few seconds; but I get it about once a week; but never happens the exact time I am at the doctor. My question is: will a doctor still be able to acknowledge my heart murmur even though I am not getting that pin feeling at the time of visit to the doctor.

Hi,heart pain and murmurs are not necessarily interconnected.Murmurs are detected even in absence of any symptoms.My advise to you is visit a Cardiologist and get yourself evaluated with an EKG ,Echocardiography etc.If these tests are normal,you need not worry.I hope this information is useful to you.Wish you good luck and take care.
