You stated that you have a history of heart problems within your family, that could mean disaster. You have to take important steps for heart care. Heart murmurs normally isn't something that goes away and comes back. Once the hole in your heart closes by itself, or through surgery, thats it. But in rare cases such as your self there is a chance it can lead to a problem

I put the needle down 4 year s ago, but the 2ND week in March I picked it up again to shoot mdpv, and can t seem to put it back down. I am 47, and had a heart attack at age 40. Shooting was my first and only love, but I did manage to quit once. Anyway, I have a stethascope and like to listen to my heart beacause it, I call it off beat s, after an hour or so of shooting. And, I had a heart murmur, my Doctor told me it was gone, but when I shoot I really hear it and it has like a click that I been hearing???

My husband's heart is beating loudly and seems to be beating irregularly. I took his blood pressure and it was normal. His heart rate was 102bpm. He also has an urge to cough periodically. He's had these episodes happen before and the cough has helped at times. Do we need to be concerned? His father died from heart disease and started having an irregular heart beat when he was 35.
