    Question Heart Murmur???

    I had to go for a physical yesterday through work so that I can get my CDL and the Dr. heard a heart murmur. I've never been diagnosed with one before, but he said it was pretty loud and his med student listened and heard it too. I had two physicals done back in the fall and no one heard it and I had my annual with my obgyn last month and he didn't hear it- so seems odd to me. I have an appointment tomorrow with my doc to get it checked out- but I was just wondering if anyone on here has had an experience like this.

    I have heart papitations due to my weight and added caffeine >_< It scares the heck out of me. My dr said that putting me of phentermine is safe because it will not raise my heart rate But I'm sorry about the heart murmur. You'll be ok

    I had the same thing....dr noticed a heart murmur shortly after I started taking Phen (don't know if there was any relation). I'm 43 it's never been noticed before dr seemed surprised as though it was pretty noticiable. They did an echo and everything was fine on it...still don't know what caused it.

    I'm sure everything will be fine on yours.

    Good idea to have it checked out. Your Dr. may want to do a echocardiogram to see if and what kind of murmur you may have. I have had a murmur since age 11. From what I know millions of people have them and they are usually benign. It's good to know what kind you have because some of us with murmurs have to take meds before going to the dentist so that there's no chance of infection getting into your system and infecting your heart, that could kill you. I take amoxicillian before going to the dentist. The type of murmur that I have is mitral valve prolapse. My valve doesn't close all the way there's a very tiny part of the flap that doesn't close completely which allows blood to backflow which produces the extra sound that doctors usually hear when listening to my heart.
    I'm sure you will be fine. I know it's scary because you have never been diagnosed with one before. Everything will work out fine for you.

    I'll be heading out to the doc in a little while- I get my phen from a clinic and I hope the doc doesn't try to yank me off of it......he was the one that said I had two months to get my BP down.....mission accomplished- even on phen- I'll write an update when I get home from work tonight.

    I've had a heart murmur since I was born, due to a narrowing in my pulmonary artery. My doctor did not have any issues with putting me on Phen becuase of it- so hopefully it will be the same for you. Good luck at the DR.

    I've had one come-and-go all my life. Most Dr.'s have told me that most people have one occasionally throughout their life and just never know it.

    Well, I went in today and I saw a FNP, I love her, and she listened and said she didn't hear it all the time, so that means it's more than likely just the sound of the blood flow. I go for an echocardiograhm in two weeks- so hopefully it's all fine

    I hope you will be okay! I'm sure it's just nothing, but always better to be safe.

    I had a heart Murmur when I was born, but with time/growing it healed.

    That's great to hear. That's a good sign that the dr. can't hear it all of the time. I'm sure the echocardiogram will confirm what your dr. said.
