ave had a heart murmur since birth. Done ECHO cardiogram. Possibility of recovery, worsening of murmur?

I have had a heart murmur since I was born, I m 18 now. 5 years ago I had an ECHO cardiogram done and it was reviewed by a pediatric cardiologist . He stated that I had an innocent murmur. Since then I have been extremely active running track and cross country although I did have a health issue with an electrolyte imbalance 2-3 years ago. I never feel pain, shortness of breath, or irregularity with the heart beats. But I was still wondering if the heart murmur could have gotten worse for any reason?

Hi there,

Thanks for writing in.

Since you are able to do all your activities esp active running track and cross country, and the fact that you don't have any chest pain, shortness of breath or irregularity in heart beats, suggest that you are ok.

Hope this helps
