Have heart murmur, exhaust during exercise, feel the pulse, acute pain in chest on breathing. Cure?

I have a heart murmur , 29, and just have a few questions concerning it. I find aerobic exercises to be extremely exhausting, no matter the level of intensity or length of time. When performing, I m a trumpet player, as I get nervous I feel my heart beating abnormally hard and loud; I can feel it pulse nearly through my entire body. My energy levels fluctuate daily, and at times will have these acute pains in my chest when I breathe in. I am overweight but stay fairly active exercising roughly 4 times a week. Diet consists of mainly proteins and small carbs, typically a white/brown rice mixture. My main concern is that as my diet is improving, will a heart murmur limit me in terms of physical activity, or is that due to something else? During exercises I feel as if my body isn t getting enough oxygen or proper blood flow .

Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

No conclusions could be derived just from the murmur.
Murmur is just a sign. It is the underlying condition that determines the outcome.

EKG / HOLTER (24 to 48 hour ambulatory monitoring) / ECHOcardiogram / TMT (Treadmill exercise EKG) / Lung Function Test /LABORATORY work-up – may all be necessary for further assessment and assistance

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
