Can a heart murmur cause fatigue, throwing up  heart pounding very fast for a 5 y/o about once a month. Doctor says they can't find anything wrong.

So, if the cardiologist told you the heart is structurally normal, then an innocent heart murmur would not cause the above symptoms. Recommend seeing a peds. Cardiologist. ...Read more
