I am assumming that you have had an echocardigram and that you Dr is aware of the cause of your murmur. Do you know the cause of your murmur? Without knowing the cause all answers would be pure speculation.

I am a woman in my 70s. Have just been diagnosed with a heart murmur. Not serious yet. I ve taken b/p meds for 20 yrs . I have also experienced extreme anxiety and depression for as many years being a caregiver for my husband. All these conditions have been controlled by meds. But I feel like things are getting worse as I grow weary and tired. Is this heart murmur serious? What can I do?
I was diagnosed with a heart murmur a year ago by my internist. I saw my another doctor today that I have been seeing for over a year and he heard it today for the first time. Can a heart murmur get worse? Should I be concerned?
my doctor has mentioned that I have a heart murmur - I have had bypass surgery about 17 years ago. I am 72, with diabetes (fairly well controlled) and I am overweight. Can this murmur get worse with age or is it just nothing to really worry about as long as I continue losing weight and watching my eating habits

Hello Dr, 41 year old, non-smoker, 1-5 units of alcohol a week, active, no other health issues. Family history of heart problems (Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy ), have been checked and do not have it, although have a slight thickening of arterial knuckle which gets monitored. I m getting what feels like pulses or faint flutters from my oesophagus region to the top of my sternum region, these symptoms are infrequent during the day to sometimes non-existent, but at night the symptoms only occur when laid on my back or on my left side (they disappear when I m lying on my right side?) and feel more constant with a heart beat ie pulses at a constant rate. Occasionally have slight breathlessness since this has started 1 week ago. Now I ve had a slight upset stomach (although not constipated I ve not been regular) the last week and the symptoms do seem to be more present when I have heavy feeling in my stomach and then subside once I pass wind. Is the pulses/flutter linked to this and could be a blockage and wind not escaping? Or something else?
My husband's heart is beating loudly and seems to be beating irregularly. I took his blood pressure and it was normal. His heart rate was 102bpm. He also has an urge to cough periodically. He's had these episodes happen before and the cough has helped at times. Do we need to be concerned? His father died from heart disease and started having an irregular heart beat when he was 35.
Recently I have been experiencing a "racing heart" ulse rate upwards to 111, and general tiredness. Is this something to be concerned about since heart disease runs in my family, including a sibling that died from a heat attack at age 57. My age is 56
