      How do you guys know if you have a heart murmur? I have started to feel something in my chest. It doesn’t hurt, but it’s like a faint difference. I’m just curious if it’s something I should worry about? I will be getting a checkup done soon, likely before the new year, so I should know more soon.

      Are heart murmurs something to worry about?

      Anxiety and chest pain are often related, which can result in increased discomfort and fear. In fact, it may be unclear whether you’re having an anxiety attack or heart attack, so knowing the difference might save your life.
      Are You Having an Anxiety Attack or a Heart Attack?
      People who suffer from dread attacks frequently say their acute anxiety feels like a heart attack, as many of the indications can appear the same. Both symptoms can be accompanied by shortness of breath, tightness in the chest, sweating, a pounding heartbeat, dizziness, and even physical weakness or temporary paralysis.
      Possibly most expected, though, is the sense of anxiety that dominates both events. The fear itself can prime to an escalation in these symptoms.

      Its better if you’re facing signs, contact your family doctor directly. While there are ways to find the difference between a panic attack and a heart attack, a curative diagnosis is the first way to be sure. Don’t take it easy pay serious attention.
      Sometimes physical indications can more clearly as an indication of heart attack.
      It is most necessary to be conscious of your identifiable heart attack risk factors. For instance, if you’re smoking too much with a family heart disease history and sometimes suffer high blood pressure, you’re more likely to have a heart attack.
      Uncertainty, on the other hand, if you involved chronic unease, grieved a recent traumatic event, or have some problems surviving with life’s ups and downs, you may be dealing with anxiety. Keep in mind Indications of panic and anxiety often bear a heart attack, which can increase your distress. If you feel anxiety similar a heart attack, the panic can feel crushing. Gratefully, when stressors weaken, the symptoms typically do, too.

      Usually, doctors find heart murmurs during a physical exam. Your doctor will be able to hear it when listening to your heart with a stethoscope. Your doctor may order one or more of the following tests to see whether your heart murmur is innocent or if it is caused by acquired valve disease or a defect you were born with:

      Electrocardiogram (EKG), which measures the electrical activity of the heart
      Chest X-rays to see if the heart is enlarged due to heart or valve disease
      Echocardiography, which uses sound waves to map the heart’s structure

      Heart murmurs are usually detected when your doctor listens to your heart using a stethoscope during a physical exam. To check whether the murmur is innocent or abnormal, your doctor will consider the following: How loud is it? This is rated on a scale from 1 to 6, with 6 being the loudest. You can also watch out following symptoms:

      Skin that appears blue, especially on your fingertips and lips.
      Swelling or sudden weight gain.
      Shortness of breath.
      Chronic cough.
      Enlarged liver.
