Heart Murmurs In Children Symptoms
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
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

In advanced stages, blocked heart arteries cause heart damage, pumping dysfunction, and heart failure. Valve disease can cause relaxation problems and heart damage as well despite normal circulation. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I suffer tiredness&discomfort in chest and heart beats during activities,with echo result of 3valves mild leak,mild pulmonary HTN+ history of HTN,19yo?
Chest discomfort: The valve findings are not severe enough to cause symptoms, but the pulmonary hypertension as well as systemic hypertension are of concern. I recommend a treadmill stress test, 24 hour ambulatory heart monitor and pulmonary function testing for further evaluation. Blood tests for thyroid function,anemia,iron and magnesium are advised.If you don't have one, a cardiologist should be involved. ...Read more
Possibly...: You may have a "subclinical" defect (such as a very small atrial septal defect) that is not large enough to generate symptoms, yet could potentially be picked up on an echocardiogram. You may also have the most common congenital heart defect ( a bicuspid aortic valve) which could also be picked up on echo and which could be asymptomatic. ...Read more
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.

This will help in the interpretation of your physical signs, like a murmur (if any). Be well! ...Read more
