HEART MURMUR IS SOUND AUSCULTATED WHEN THERE IS REGURGITATION OF BLOOD AO ARTEROLES FROM VENTRICE,IN HEALTHY STATE NORMALL THA TWO VALVES BICUSPID AND TRICUSPID PREVENT IT FROM REGURGITATION,THUS MURMUR CLEARLY SIGNIFY DEFECT OF VALVES ,.
IF MURMURS ARE SEVERE IT MAY LEAD TO REDUCED EJECTION OR MIXING OF OXY AND DEOXY BLOOD.
THIS MAY CAUSE SYMPTOMS LIKE CYANOSIS,FATIGUE ETC.
THE LATE EFFECT APPEARS AS VENTRICULAR HYPERTROPHY,WHICH BECOMES A SERIOS CONCERN.
In most cases a heart murmur is not a serious problem. Most often it's caused by mvp(mitral valve prolapse), which is very common. If this is the case you'll need to be pre-medicated with antibiotics before having dental work done. You'll need to have an echocardiogram done to confirm what is causing the murmur. It's a very simple, painless test. I do many of them every day. Check with your dr.

I am a woman in my 70s. Have just been diagnosed with a heart murmur. Not serious yet. I ve taken b/p meds for 20 yrs . I have also experienced extreme anxiety and depression for as many years being a caregiver for my husband. All these conditions have been controlled by meds. But I feel like things are getting worse as I grow weary and tired. Is this heart murmur serious? What can I do?

For the past 4 days, my blood pressure has been running anywhere from 130/95 to 120/102. My blood pressure is usually normal (typically 120/78 or so). I have high cholesterol and a family history of heart disease & am 51. What I don t understand is the numbers being close together. My last reading was 119/102.
I am a 44 year old male with a family history of hyperlipidemia and heart disease. My father had a AMI at age 50 and expired. His father expired at age 51 with an AMi. Both were sudden death. I had a Cardiac CTA yesterday which revealed a calcium score of 252. The report revealed a 70-80% blockage to the middle of the LAD with about 50% occlusion on both of the ends. Seeing a cardiologist tomorrow. What do you think the treatment will be for this?
I recently had an ECG after an abnormal EKG. The ECG showed vent. rate 108bpm Sinus tachycardia, PR interval 158 ms, possible left atrial enlargement, QRS duration 88 ms , nonspecific ST abnormality, QT/QTc 368/493 ms, abnormal ECG, P-R-T axes 70 48 58 and prolonged QT. The cardiologist didn t seem very concerned and felt the abnormality was because of the medication I was taking - remeron for sleeping; I suffer from chronic insomnia. I have been on this medication for over two years and have never had any side effects or problems with it. In the past three-four months, however, I have been experiencing chest pains, some severe which is why I went to my physician to get the first EKG which showed a fast heart beat and was referred to the cardiologist for an ECG, EKG and a stress test. I was only on the treadmill for maybe 4 1/3 minutes before I experienced SOB and chest pains. They repeated the ECG and I was told it was abnormal and to discuss my medications with my psychiatrist and that I had nothing to worry about. When I see abnormal ECG, EKG and am taking nitro tablets with a family history of heart disease (father COPD, CHF and angioplasty; grandfather died of a heart attack), I have a tendency not to believe the doctor. I have not even been contacted by my physician for a follow-up visit. Should I be concerned. Cancer also runs in my family; my father died of colon, liver CA and I am breast cancer survivor. I d appreciate your comments. Should I seek another opinion? Thanks, Mary Kopco YYYY@YYYY I am a 61 y.o. white female, 137 lbs w/ hx of cancer (bilateral mastectomy and hysterectomy for CA of uterus), osteoporosis and osteoarthritis, high cholesterol (328), allergic to any statin drugs, being treated with Zetia 10 mg 1 x/day. Presently taking nitro tabs for chest pain, oxybutityn for overactive bladder, clonazepam 1mg 3x/day for anxiety and depression. I look forward to your response. Thank you.
