    anyone know about heart murmers? My daughter has one.........

    I just heard that my little girl went to the doctors and they heard a heart murmer. I dont know the severety of it but, it doesnt seem to be bothering her they said. Does anyone know the potential risks involved in these? Any advice or info on them is welcomed. Thanks, I feel like shit.

    My youngest son was born with a heart murmur, I was scared to death but come to find out that it was not as big of a problem as I thought........ He was diagnosed with a VSD ( a small to medium sized hole in the heart that was allowing blood to flow thru......... We saw a heart specialist every 6 months and now once a year the hole is getting smaller as he gets bigger and that even if it never completly closed up he would still live a normal life, sports, etc without any problems................ He only has to take antibiotics before surgeries and dental work.............

    How old is your daughter and what kind of mumur does she have?????????

    I had a heart murmor as a child and it went away as I got older. Now my heart beats in an nice regular fashion. I would not worry at all unless the doctors determine that there is something seriously wrong.

    I have a murmur. In most cases there is nothing to worry about.

    I also have one. She may need to have antibiotics before dental work when she's older....but many people have them and live normal lives.

    Relax Dad.

    A pal of mine has had one for 60 years and it hasn't slowed him down any. YMMV.

    I never heard about the antibiotics. Why do people with murmurs need them.

    I have had one my whole life. A heart murmur is an irregular heartbeat. Before surgery I've always had to get an EKG (I think that's what it's called) because of this. It's gotten better as I get older but there's really no cure for it that I've heard of. I haven't had problems and I've used everything from clen to ephedra to just about every other energy pill out there and I've been working out since I'm 15. I wouldn't worry about it.

    Mine was found in a medical for a job, like 6 months ago. I knew something was different by the look on the docs face, when she took it. She said it was quiet strong and strange it hadn't been found b4. Told me not to worry to much. The fact that it was quiet obvious meant more than likely it was nothing to worry about. If I was concered my family doc would have a better idea because he would have my patient history etc.

    I've to taken an antibiotic before dental work too. It was explained to me that I may have some scar tissue on my heart and dental work carries the risk of infection, which could attack the scar tissue. To be completely honest with you it never bothered me too much so I never looked into it. The antibiotic is just one sacket mixed into a drink and taken one hour before the procedure.

    So does that mean B4 I go get work done at the dentist, I have to pay 45 euro to see my doc, or will I get this off my dentist.

    I had one when I was little. I grew out of it though. I think most people do. I wouldn't worry about it until you have real reason to worry about it. I hope she's fine man.
