I'm sorry to hear of this with Aimee. Her history of heart murmur and syncope (fainting) when excited indicates advanced cardiac disease. Both arrhythmia (irregular heart rate) and an inefficiently performing heart due to heart valve leakage need to be considered. Time is of the essence to have Aimee rechecked. Her fainting can progress to loss of life. X-rays and EKG of her heart are essential. If the diagnosis remains elusive, a cardial ultrasound (echocardiogram) will be recommended. Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.
