Suggest treatment for heart murmur

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?

Hello,

I passed carefully through your question and would explain that your symptoms do not seem to be related to the heart.

Acid reflux or a musculoskeletal pain could be the main causes underlying your complaints, as your symptoms are relieved by sitting down.

Coming to this point, I recommend taking omeprazole for acid reflux.

If the pain does not improve, the next step would be taking acetaminophen, which would help in case of musculoskeletal pain.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Hello,

I passed carefully through your question and would explain that your symptoms do not seem to be related to the heart.

In my opinion, gastro-oesophagal reflux or a musculoskeletal pain could be the reasons underlying your complaints.

For this reason, I would recommend avoiding spicy food and taking acetaminophen for the pain.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Good afternoon I was told back in Aug 2013 that I have Factor 5 Leiden thrombophilia. The doctor put me on Xarelto for 6 months now and has taken me off and to start using aspirin again. The doctor states that they do not like to keep on medication no longer then 6 months. But I m still on Hydrochlothiazide 25 mg every other day and my ankles are still swollen. I asked the doctor how will I know if I get the blood clots again and his response was I will know. Should I find a hematology & oncology? This scares me!
