Hello, this is Dr. David. I am reviewing your question now and will be with you momentarily.
there are many potential causes for heart murmur
innocent murmur can occur when blood flows more rapidly than normal through the heart. Conditions that may cause rapid blood flow through your heart, resulting in an innocent heart murmur, include Physical activity or exercise, Pregnancy, Fever, Not having enough healthy red blood cells to carry adequate oxygen to your body tissues (anemia), hyperthyroidism
why do you think you have a heart murmur?
how old are you?
have you had a cardiac echo before?
this can see a lot of structural information in your heart
and can see if you have valve related heart murmur.
you can ask your primary care doctor for blood testing for hyperthyroidism and anemia blood testing
it sounds like you are worried about this heart murmur
you should call up your doctor and ask for a sooner follow up and testing to find out why you have this murmur
you are welcome
