A heart murmur is an indication of something that's going on with the heart valve or related valves, aortic. Most babies born have heart murmurs due to undeveloped heart valves. During your lifetime things happen, you gain or lose weight, this could be it, disease, infections, etc, many things. Best to see your cardiologist, not your doctor, get a complete physical and be safe.
