Are Heart Murmurs Curable?

I have been getting chest and jaw pain for quite some time now. I also have pain in both my arms and shoulders, but I feel it more in my left arm and shoulder, and at times I feel the pain in the left side of my face. My doctor said that I have a heart murmur and I am scheduled for an echocardiogram next week. My question is: Will the heart murmur go away? Also, I play Rugby, will the heart murmur interfere with Rugby? Thank you for your time. Cassie

Hello There

After going through your medical query I understand your concern and I would like to tell you that there are many types of murmur some are normal and some abnormal . But your Symptoms are suggestive of CAD so it is recommended for you to get an echo first and if it is normal then go for an angiogram for proper evaluation and treatment.

Hopefully this information will guide you properly

Kind Regards
