Is it possible to have a heart murmur of a 2 years old baby?

My friend's two day old baby has been diagnosed with a heart murmur? They did an ECG which came back normal and blood pressure was equal on the baby s arms and legs. She has to take the baby for a check up in four weeks. He seems to be feeding well. Does anyone know what the likely outcome of his condition will be?

I had a heart murmur when i was born too. It never really bothered me but had to see a specialist twice a year up until the age of 9 when i got the all clear. the doctor did tell me that those with heart murmurs would probably have some breathing defects and that i would more than likely develop asthma when i was older-which i did.Other than that everything is fine

So, at three days old i had transposition of the great vessels. that is the only surgery they have ever preformed on me. I am 15 almost 16 years old now. At the age of 6 or 7 they released me to do anything as far as sports and things like the army go. i am currently playing football at a fullback position. I have recently (for about 2 months or so) been have massive chest pains and lightheadedness. I talked to a cardiologist at my heart camp and he said that it is a possibility that my heart murmur may be expanding. the pain occurs at random times and the pain last longer each time it happens it almost unbearable at some times and others not so much but still enough to slow me down even at times of rest. I have not seeked medical attention yet. Back to football. I for the most part don t feel much pain on the field . maybe because of the adrenaline? I compete in several sports like wresting and track. As a doctor what do you think is happening to me?

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?
