Murmur: Heart murmur just means noise. Talk to the doc and what he believes is causing the murmur and what is its significance.

Not likely: A murmur can be nothing, something minor, or sometimes very serious. Ask your gp what your murmur is. Have an echocardiogram if you have not. Information is needed to know what you may expect. Good luck.
