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
