Suggest treatment for heart murmur

my daughter is 4 months old an was diagnosed with a heart mumor. Although with that she has been sweating and vomiting excessively as well as having hard dried balls for her stools. She has stopped sleeping as much now and only sleeps 30-45mins at a time. Is this normal for her with her heart condition or what should I do they changed her formula to sensitive about 2 months ago and nothing changed till this past week..

Hi welcome to him
I understand your query and concern.
Your symptoms are suggestive of Rheumatic heart disease.I advise you to get anECG,2D Echo,lipid profile,hsCRP.I advise you to get a complete clinical cardiac examination to look for exact site of murmur.I advise you to monitor heart rate and blood pressure.I also advise you to start taking antibiotics,anti hypertensives,lipid lowering drugs once diagnosis is confirmed.Meanwhile avoid stress and anxiety.Take symptomatic treatment like pantop and domperidone to get relief of your symptoms. Once diagnosis confirmed,you can go for valve replacement depending on the site involved.Also preliminary coronary angiogram will be done to look for any blocks.Consult your cardiologist for expert management.
Post your further queries if any,
Thank you

My girlfriend is 15 and she is what is known as a miricle baby. Her heart is a little too big and she has a heart murmur + a hole. She went to the doctors the 29 of Jan and they said its too dangerous to operate. Is she in any danger? What can I do to help? Will it ever go away?

I am 49 and have a heart murmur that has not impeded any activity in the past. Yesterday after a weekend of working on my house in the hot sun with no breaks for food and water, I woke up with a pain in my heart when I rolled over on my back. It subsided when I sat up, but I was pretty exhausted and slept all day. I felt fine by the evening. This morning when I woke up I felt a slight pain (not as bad as yesterday) again relieved when I sit up. I have a heart vitamin with coenzyme Q10, resveratol in it. I took one yesterday plus one aspirin. I have stayed home again for rest. I have no insurance right now. Recommendations?
