Hello from JustAnswer. This is Dr. Love.

There are many possible meanings to a heart murmur, but if you were recently diagnosed with a narrrowing of a heart valve, that would explain a heart murmur.

A heart murmur does not necessarily mean that there is a heart problem, which can be called innocent or physiologic murmurs.

However, when a murmur is due to a heart problem, it is most often related to valve disease, which can be either valve narrowing or valve leakage of any of the four heart valves, with the aortic valve and the mitral valve most often causing a murmur.

In your case, though, the murmur is almost certainly related to the valve narrowing.

If I can provide any additional information, please let me know.
