    I was told that I had a murmur in my mitral valve when I had my army medical in 1952 when I was 18. In 2011 I was found to have aortic stenosis and had my aortic valve replaced the next year and I've had LVH since at least 2000. And I have a 4.4mm aortic Aneurysm diagnosed in 2004 and probably a few things that have not yet been diagnosed and I'm not dead yet. Fear does more damage than your murmur probably ever will . Murmurs are very common and people lead a normal life with them.
