if you have an 'innocent' murmur, the ones that don't require surgery because the heart maintains regular blood flow and it's just a 'noisey' heart, blah blah blah... is it still a risk? i have an innocent murmur and just decided it'd be a bad idea to even try x... but i would really like to know if there is any dangers at all...

Risk is increased in people with cardiac murmurs when they take ecstasy. Your friend is an idiot, have a good time explaining it to the hospital ER when he/she is admitted for toxicity.

I had gone to the doctor approx. 5 years before, because while i was still in high school, while walking to class both of my calf muscles seized up and i was having a difficult time walking. by the time i had made it to class my left arm and my chest also had sharp stabbing pain. when i went to the doctors she did a blood test and a chest ex-ray and told me i was fine.last year had gone to the doctors after feeling like i was having a difficult time breezing. it would feel like someone was sitting on my chest,and was have a lot of palpitations .. I was diagnosed with a heart murmur, described as one of my valves not closing properly , I was also told that my cholesterol was fine,But I was recently told by a customer of mine that there are degrees of heart murmurs. so my question is it is true and should my doctor have told me that? and i also wanted to know if my earlier episode could have been caused by my murmur and if it could be a sign of something more serious.

Yes I had a visiting nurse today from my insurance company at my home and she checked my heart with her stethoscope and said I had a heart murmur , this is the first time any one has said that to me as I just had my annual checkup with my primary doctor and she didn t say I had a heart murmur! Is that something I should be concerned about?
