Heart Murmur Symptoms Children
Occasionally: Kawasaki disease can lead to most commonly a specific rash, fever, swollen lymph nodes, and specific changes to the lips/tongue and hands/feet. However, there are specific changes that can occur in the heart. Occasionally this may lead to a murmur, which is a specific sound of blood flowing through the heart. Most often, though, kawasaki disease causes heart inflammation without a murmur. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
A heart murmur is a sound heard by a stethoscope made by the vibration of blood flow. It can be a normal finding in young healthy people, or can represent abnormal leakage (regurgitation) of a valve, valve narrowing (stenosis), or a congenital condition such as an atrial septal defect, a ventricular septal defect, ...Read more
Have multiple miscarriages. Have heart murmur, severe ectopic heart beats/lack oxygen to heart and pulm stenosis. Can they cause miscarriages?
High flow: Yes, this is common. Thyrotoxicosis increases cardiac output and the increased flow of blood can often create a "flow murmur". Although your doctor may want to do an echo to check it out, a flow murmur from hyperthyroidism is benign and usually goes away with treatment of the thyroid. ...Read more
Son born with heart murmur checked by cardiologist they called it irregular ventricular beats now at 7 innocent heart murmur should I be concerned?
Get seen: Some folks are born with problems with the av node and its branches ("right bundle branch block", etc.), or a tiny heart attack or a bit of amyloid or a few other things can cause troubles here as well. A cardiologist visit's probably in order, and you may end up chatting about whether you want an electronic pacemaker. ...Read more
Valve damage: Rheumatic fever may damage or distort the valves in your heart rendering them unable to either close or open properly. As blood is pushed through a valve that does not open properly or leaks back through one that does not close well, the "squirting" noise (murmur) that is produced with acceleration of blood flow can be heard with a stethoscope placed over the affected valve. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
MVP: Not really... A lot of "symptoms" have been attributed to mvp. However, there are quite a few studies showing no difference in symptoms in people with or without mvp. Too often, mvp has been used as a "convenience" diagnosis to explain a variety of poorly defined symptoms. Conclusion, it can, but most likely it is not... ...Read more
Mitral regurgitation: Our echocardiogram studies are so sensitive that they frequently show tiny amounts of insignificant valve leak, with trace mitral regurgitation being the commonest of these. It is not a concern. To have a murmur you have to have enough turbulent blood flow to make an audible noise. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Can malnutrition worsen 13 year olds congenital heart defect-tetralogy of Fallot, valve regurgitation, and various holes throughout the heart?
Yes, because...: Malnutrition worsens everything related to a one's health, both mentally and physically. In the U.S., with it's economic wealth and ample food supply, there is little malnutrition, except for people who have very little variety in their diets, who refuse to eat, who cannot eat due to medical problems, or who cannot absorb nutrients from their food. Heart is muscle, and muscles need good nutrition. ...Read more
Not typical: The classic VSD physical finding is of course a holosystolic murmur. However, if the VSD is subarterial or supracristal, it can distort the aortic valve, sometimes causing leaflet prolapse. If this results in significant aortic insufficiency, there will be an associated diastolic murmur (with the insufficiency representing an indication for surgical repair). ...Read more
Unlikely: An normal thorough echocardiogram, especially a pediatric echo, generally rules out a vsd. It would be very unlikely to fail to identify a significant vsd on a thorough echo. Tiny ones can sometimes be missed, but they usually don't matter anyway since they rarely cause problems or need treatment. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Can mitral valve prolapse be misdiagnosed as anemia? Fluttering pounding heart beat, shortness of breath, shaking/twitching, pain in arms and legs.
Yes: Rheumatic fever can affect the heart, most commonly the heart valves. Early cardiac findings of acute rheumatic fever include mitral insufficiency and aortic insufficiency. Long-term consequences of rheumatic heart disease include the development mitral stenosis and/or aortic stenosis. The tricuspid and pulmonary valves can also be affected. ...Read more
No: Heart murmurs are caused mostly by diseases of the valves of the heart, but can also be caused by congenital heart disease with septal defects, or abnormal connections between the aorta and pulmonary artery. They can also be totally benign conditions due to vigorous blood flow through the heart, usually in kids and athletes. Those murmurs are known as pulmonary flow murmurs. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
