Hi, here history of murmur is of 2 days only.
Is there any previous cardiac disease you have that lead to narrowing of valve of heart.narrowing of valve(stenosis) could be due to thematic fever, infective endocarditis,lupus etc. Rheumatic fever associated with involuntary movement,skin patches,arthritis etc.CRP will be helpful.
FOr lupus ANA level done.
Treatment is according to cause.
Regular treatment for hypertension has to be taken if present.
If valve stenosis severe then its repair or replacement done.
If heart failure present (edema over body),take diuretic.
I find this answer helpful
