I Have A Heart Murmur And Chest Pains
I've been having sharp random chest pains when I sit and lay down. I've been sick for about 3 months and have a heart murmur. Possible problems?
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
Sharp chest pains in the middle of my chest (between my boobs). I do have a heart murmur, anything to do with it?
Emergency Room trip?: Having new sharp chest pains is a serious enough for an evaluation right away. A doctor can check to see if there is a pneumothorax or other chest problem. Inflammation of the linings of the ribs, the lungs, or the heart can also cause chest pain. Evaluation may be done at an ER, where it is easy to get an exam, a chest x-ray, and an EKG plus lab tests if it looks like it could be a heart attack. ...Read more
I often have stinging chest pains in the middle of my jest (between my boobs) I do have a heart murmur, does it have anything to do with it?
Non-cardiac pain: Murmurs are painless. Most common cause of central anterior chest pain would be a diaphragmatic muscle spasm. Hurts a lot and gradual passes over a minute or so. Other pains are usually dull and cramping. I know of no life threatening similar discomforts. Some problems with swallowing can cause severe cramping pain but the diaphragm is the best bet. There is no preventive measure for that. ...Read more
I had a heart murmur since I was a baby and the dr said it's still really loud. I had it checked when I was 7 but I have chest pains. What could it be?
Heart murmur: What did your echocardiogram reveal about your heart murmur? Do you have a significant valvular problem? Your chest pains may not be related to the heart and more info is needed about your chest pains to make a diagnosis. Your physician who knows your condition is best to advise you. ...Read more
When I was born, I was born with heart murmur. What are the consequences? Lately been having intense chest pains, with trouble breathing. Help?
Probably unrelated: Heart murmurs are relatively common in kids & the bad ones end up with lots of tests and treatments before school age. Most are innocent sounds of blood flow, or self healing problems. If you were not identified & treated as a heart problem as a kid, your chance of it being a problem at 21 are minimal. Most acute chest pain at your age is heartburn, You should clarify the issue through a visit/eval ...Read more

All my life I was told I was healthy. Today my physician heard what she called "a tiny heart murmur" normal ekg after bt I get chest pain. Heart prob?
Probably flow murmur: Given ur age, it's probably a flow murmur... u seem 2 get worked up easily, & going 2 d doctor probably didn't help matters. When ur heart gets going / anxious, it pumps more blood through d valves (called a sympathetic response or "adrenaline rush"). With more blood flowing through the valves @ a faster speed, turbulence develops, which causes murmur. Ur doc checked it out, ur OK now, bk to nl. ...Read more

Pulm heard a loud heart murmur on left side 1 mo ago. Echo norm. Dr says still loud but prob just pleural rub. Can hear in back and up to neck. Chest pain. Sleep sitting up cause hard to breathe and painful. Does norm echo rule out cardiac issues?
Murmur: Was the echocardiogram perfectly normal or was there some valvular abnormality? Sometimes minor abnormalities create loud murmurs. Other causes of loud noises in the chest and neck include abnormalities of blood vessels in the neck or thorax or pericardial disease. Asymmetric septal hypertrophy of the heart can cause loud murmurs but should be obvious on echocardiogram. See a cardiologist for advi ...Read more
