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 m Patty, i m 17, turning 18 about 107 pounds and i have asthma and heart murmurs, though the cardiologist said 2 years ago my heart murmurs shouldn t disrupt me because it s not too serious. Just yesterday and up to today, i felt something on my chest. i felt pressure on my chest as i exhaled and it comes and goes. my dad thought i should sleep it off since i had a head ache, so i did. when i woke up this morning, everything was fine but around 2pm today, i started feeling it again. Is this serious? Do any of you know what it is?

My 14 yr. old is having extreme burping, we have been to the ER and got no results. She was previously diagnosed with a Lyles Heart murmur or musical murmur. She is 5 9 , 138 pounds, active with basketball and dance. She complains of lightheadedness, chest pain in upper left quadrant, left arm pain and she says she feels like her heart is racing at random times. She can t inhale or exhale deeply without burps, and they are constant and persistant. She has had a normal sonogram of the liver, kidneys, gall bladder. Do you have any suggestions? We are frustrated. In the ER she had low potassium and low BUN, she has also been diagnosed with chillblains on the fingers and toes, negative antigen test for Lupus and Rheumatoid arthritis.
