Found slight murmur in childhood. Why is it still there?

When i was little my doctor found a slight murmur. He said when i got older i would grow out of it. Its still here i have had ekgs and a sonogram done. Everyrhing normal. But before that my new doctor said she can hear a slight murmur in my neck . But sometimes when i bend down to pick something up really fast it beats fast and irregular. Fluttery. But only sometimes. I do smoke but im definitely done. Tired of panicking. And it will flutter weirf most of the time?

Hi..wright.., the murmur which disappears when grown older is due to persistence opening between the two auricles in the heart.. this opening will normally close by birth , in sme patients it will continue to persist for long time and then close... but since your sonograms are normal , means the defect is closed.. hence do not worry.. everything is fine..

Take care..
