Is it ok to drink energy drinks if I have a heart murmur?

No. no energy drinks are dangerous to any heart condition .
Hard to say. I find no nutritional or other value in "energy" drinks. That said, there is no good way to answer your question. If I listen to a patient often enough in his/her life I will often hear an innocent heart murmur that has no significance. They have nothing wrong with their heart & the murmur just reflects blood flow. If they had any heart defect related murmur, such drinks would be a bad idea.

Palps and pops. First since your doctor says your heart is fine, stop poisoning yourself with 'pop'. If you are smoking or using other substances like 'pot' or other; stop that.
