Hi well come to HCM.
Murmur is foreign sound produced in heart during heart cycle.Since the child is of only
two years they will eamine him and submit for echo cardiogram and ecg to look for
congenital heart lesion like atrial septal defect, ventricular sepatal defect, PDA etc
and if any thing found they will explain you the things for future course of action. Need
nit keep any apprehension because all this thing they are going to do are non invasive
and will be done from out side only. Take care. Thanks

hi. my 2 yr old daughter was diagnosed with a heart murmur last year and was sent to see a pediatric cardiologist. my daughter was really unsettled and cried all the way through the examanation, the doctor said she was okay and that was basically it. Ive recently become worried because when she really hurts herself and cries she goes limp and her eyes start rolling. I dont feel that she was checked properly as she was very unsettled. could you please tell me if that is just something kids do. ive got a 4yr old son and never been through anything like this with him.

I have a 5 yr old son he was diagnosed with a innocent heart murmur and I was told that it would only act up when he gets sick that I have nothing to worry about. He also has asthma and seasonal allergies but that s it....but recently he has half the energy he use to have no appitie (unless its sugarery) stomach problems (going to the bathroom a lot) and complains about his head hurting so I m really concerend and have asked his pediatrician about these symptoms but they just blow it off....the only thing that sticks out in my mind besides the heart mumor is that for thepast 4 plus months is that he has a very enlarged gland on the left side of his neck that just won t go way....please if anyone has any ideas let me know asap!

Hello. I went to the cardiologist today and had both an electro cardiogram and an echo cradiogram done. I ve had a heart murmer since my birth, though I am not sure exactly what kind it is. However, I do know for a fact that it is an innocent murmur, and that I should expect to outgrow it within the next few years. I am fifteen by the way. Now, I have smoked marijuana several times. I began this year. Usually it went fine. Then when i began to do it more frequently and at higher doses, I would feel the increased heart-rate, panic, etc. I realize this is normal. But i once fainted for a few seconds as a result of standing up too quickly while high. I understand that this is brought about by a rapid decrease in blood pressure? That s only happened once though. Other side effects have been a slight cold/fuzzy feeling in the left chest at the very beginning of the buzz, which goes away shortly. My question is if I can safely use marijuana in moderation, like once a month or probably less. How does my heart murmur play into all of this? Thank you.

my child has an elevated CRP (normal range 0-5) hers is 105. She is normal weight. she has an innocent heart murmur. she has had a third blood test today (for cultures). What causes elevated CRP, and why is it a mystery as to what CRP directly relates to? or does it relate only directly to heart?
