If I have a heart murmur does that mean I can have heart problems? Get sharp pain left side of chest.

The basics. The term just means extra sound, more than the lub dup we expect. Most are innocent, the bad ones usually result in heart surgery in the first year. If you have a common innocent murmur, you have the same risk of heart problems as anyone your age. If it is a new finding during an illness, it may reflect a heart problem.
Depends. On why you have the murmur. In simple terms a murmur is some type of abnormal flow across a heart valve. It's either too tight a hole or too loose a hole. An echocardiogram can help measure the problem . Many murmurs are called innocent. That is there is an abnormal sound, but the appearance of the valves on echocardiogram are normal.
