Cardiologist 's  Response
The symptoms you are describing points to some valvular problem of heart. There are number of conditions that can cause diastolic murmur like Mitral stenosis, Aortic regurgitation, tricuspid stenosis, some heart tumor etc etc.
I think you should undergo echocardiography test immediately that will delineate all the features about your heart disease..
Most likely it will be mitral stenosis, but it is to be confirmed with further evaluation
