My doctor heard a squeak in my heartbeat today It squeaked

Resolved Question:

My doctor heard a squeak in my heartbeat today? It squeaked every time my heart beat. He even let me listen...it was very weird. What does it mean? I have a pacemaker, but he said that wasn't what was making the noise. This is the first time he has heard that sound.

DR.TIWARI ,M.S. :

Hello,

DR.TIWARI ,M.S. :

The abnormal sounds with heart beats are known as murmurs

DR.TIWARI ,M.S. :

which are present with various conditions like anemia,mitral/aortic/tricuspid stenosis

DR.TIWARI ,M.S. :

They are also present with regurgitation conditions.

DR.TIWARI ,M.S. :

These abnormal sounds are also part of the anemia ,thyrotoxicosis & some other general diseases.

DR.TIWARI ,M.S. :

If you are continuously having them with abnormal symptoms like fatigue,cynosis,swelling in limbs then you should consult to your cardiologist for evaluation.

DR.TIWARI ,M.S. :

Hope this will help you.

JACUSTOMER-8qppfrjn- :

what are regurgitation conditions? Like acid reflux?

DR.TIWARI ,M.S. :

No ,This is regurgitation at heart.

DR.TIWARI ,M.S. :

The valves also prevent the back flow of blood .

JACUSTOMER-8qppfrjn- :

He has never heard this sound before and it was an actual squeak sound with each beat. I have a pacemaker. I also have fast heart beats several times a month.

DR.TIWARI ,M.S. :

If this occurs then this is known as regurgitation.

JACUSTOMER-8qppfrjn- :

does that cause the sound to squeak? He explained a murmur and said it was more of a whoshing sound.

DR.TIWARI ,M.S. :

This may cause this abnormal sound.

JACUSTOMER-8qppfrjn- :

Thank you for your answer. I'm still confused. He has set up an echo for next week.

JACUSTOMER-8qppfrjn- :
