I think i have a heart murmur

i think i have a heart murmur, my mother and sister have one so ive been thinking i have one too. it only bothers me at night usually when im trying to go to sleep and its very frustrating. the doctors told both my mother and my sister that its not severe and shouldnt let it bother them, but i dont know if its the same for me... should i be worried? nobody seems to believe me, and i dont know if i should really be concerned about it or not...?

Hi, I m a 29 year old female and I ve got a heart murmur, very slight, and have been having a strange spasm/vibrating feeling just under my rib cage on my left side, in line with my heart. Could this be related to my heart, or unrelated? What do you think it could be?

Hello my mum is nearly 90 and had a fall last week she was in hospital and was told she has a heart murmur. She now has very rosy cheeks and she thinks she is dying. I ve heard if somebody is near the end of their life and poorly this could be a sign. She s now stopped eating and only drinks very little.

I have had four kids. My mother has tachacardia and heart murmur and low BP. I am 31, 185, 5'6. Could never run very fast even in the military ( i was 18-24 years old). I could only run 1.5 miles 20 minutes at my best. I have heart palpatations when running, walking at steep incline, and when laying down doing absolutely nothing. I don't always get them when doing these activities but it also occurs with shortness of breathe sometimes.

My daughter is 32 weeks pregnant. For the past couple of weeks, she has been experiencing shortness of breath, chest/rib pain and feeling really tired. Yesterday it was discovered she has a heart murmur. She has never had cardiac problems up to now. She was told to go home and "just lay around and do nothing" until an echo can be done next week to determine how strong her heart is at this time. How dangerous is this condition to her and the baby?
