What is the treatment for a heart murmur?

hi. my 2 yr old daughter was diagnosed with a heart murmur last year and was sent to see a pediatric cardiologist. my daughter was really unsettled and cried all the way through the examanation, the doctor said she was okay and that was basically it. Ive recently become worried because when she really hurts herself and cries she goes limp and her eyes start rolling. I dont feel that she was checked properly as she was very unsettled. could you please tell me if that is just something kids do. ive got a 4yr old son and never been through anything like this with him.

Hi, sometimes in a child there can be what is called a haemic murmur due to anemia. I am sure the cardiologist would not have missed anything serious even with a crying child.
Regarding her reactions to injury, these are just over reactions and may not be present in all children--regards
