A : A murmur is simply a sound coming from the heart.. It could mean nothing or be very serious and require treatment and follow -up. See a cardiologist and get an echocadiogram with doppler of your heart ..This will tell the story. And you will know exactly what you need to do if anything. Don't wait ! ...Read more

What are symptoms of a heart murmur?

None, really: A murmur is a sound from flow in the heart. It can come from a lot of reasons. Symptoms, or how you feel, depend on what is actually going on with your heart. Lots of murmurs are totally normal. When you see your doctor, start with how you are doing or feeling, and if there is any change from before. This will help in the interpretation of your physical signs, like a murmur (if any). Be well! ...Read more

Unlikely: Symptoms of shortness of breath when you think about it, and need for yawning is unlikely to be a significant problem. I would focus upon good rest and exercise and reassess. Heart murmurs are wide and varied, and if related to shortness of breath is usually activity related. If you do have activity related shortness of breath , then you should have this reviewed with a cardiologist. ...Read more
