    I have mitral prolapse which has been around for some time, makes a sound that new docs always want to have further investigated. It's a thing many people have that doesn't do anything, really.

    The echocardiogram will tell the doctor whether you need more test or not. Please try not too worry, Susan. Easier said than done, I know.

    Hey Susan about a year ago I was totally falling apart thought I was dying of a horrible disease. Turns out I have a under active thyroid which caused me to have a heart murmur. Would this be possible in your case. Hope all goes well I know its easier said than done but try not to get over anxious. Lol I need to seriously practice what I preach. Keep us posted. Xxx smile

    I have had a heart murmur sense I was 10 yrs. old.  With my complaints about the change of life the doctor did an EKG a few weeks ago.  I don't exactly know  what a murmur is or what it means but I think puberty and the change, with the hormones going on, is what triggered it.  I hope it is nothing to worry about.  Ask some questions for both of us.  The one that was done a few weeks ago was O.K.

    Keep busy and it will take your mind off of it until you can get some answers.

    Hi susan 

    oh hun, try not to worry, it is very common.. so wait and see what the other Doc says about it.. ' remember some docs have ' all the gear and no idea' and some things they shouldnt even say with out a full explanation, it just puts fear in us, mainly down to their lack od communication skills.. 

    Heart murmur facts.

    Turbulent blood flow within the heart causes abnormal sounds called murmurs. Most murmurs are functional, or physiologic, and are normal.

    Some murmurs are due to abnormal function of the valves in the heart. The valves may have narrowing (stenosis) or they may leak (regurgitation).
