Saturday our little guy turned three and yesterday we took him for his 3 year check up. Long story short we got some unsettling news. The doctor heard what he thought were murmurs... I've done a little research on the matter and after reading that it is normal for that to happen in growing children but it could also mean something much worse.

And to add my lady has been complaining about chest pains, numbness in her left arm and shoulder blade area, nausea, and severe stress. Soo I thought i'd read up on cardiovascular stuff which led me to heart attacks (mainly mild) can occur and never be noticed.

I hope both are nothing more than a scare.

So my question is has anyone you know or yourselves been in or gone through anything I have mentioned?

I would greatly appreciate any and all insight you guys/gals have to offer.

I get A-fib every once and awhile, its where a section of your heart quivers and doesnt covert it self back, it sucks. I have to go to the hospital and they shock me with the paddles with 100 jewels of electricity to convert me back. Otherwise if I don’t do it within 48 hours, you can throw a blood clot and die.

There is nothing more to say then it suck. Ive been lucky and have not had it for about 2 years. But before that i use to get it like every 6 months.

Diet and Exercises seems to keep the heart pain away. lol

GET IN YOUR CAR AND GET HER TO THE ER NOW!

Seriously if that has just started today or the past few days you have to get her medical attention.

Could be noting or it could be something big either way she needs a doctor.

We're going in tomorrow morning... She also has high anxiety and panic attacks, Although i'm not sure if that is relevant or not...She gone in before for this and they thought it was a thyroid issue but results always came back negative, it's been a puzzle game figuring out what is going on so we switched doctors and are going tomorrow morning.

While I don't know if it will help I will share part of my own story with you. As a child I grew up in the Cub and Boy scouts graduating both. When I was a weeee~ one in cub scouts one of the Leaders noticed I had a hard time keeping up with the other boys. The doctors wrote it off as Exertional Asthma and I was prescribed an inhaler only to be used when attacks happened. Going into High School Freshman year I took on Wrestling even knowing my own limitations. I worked out and ran and worked out some more. Until one day in Church I was slammed by a headache that felt like a brick was being slammed against the back of my head. My mother immediately took me to the doctor who diagnosed me with Hypertension. This was the mystery because of my size and body type by looking at me you would have never thought this. It wasn't just High it was off the charts High 210 over 165 and I was calm breathing ok. needless to say my Doctor was perplexed and entered me into several studies. (Additionally he set up a young man on clonidine I think that's how you spell it .5mg) Well I didn't like the medicine but it worked. It also knocked my ass out everytime I took the meds. The MRI's followed and the doctor came out and stated that I had a heart Murmur and most likely always had it. Well this didn't sit well with Mummy and scared the hell out of her. So being a good son I at least stayed on the Meds (which I despise) and still wrestled because I wasn't going to give that up I came to far and won to much to say nay~ About Half way through High school when I started a Hypertension study with a "Specialist in Hypertension" Not sure if I had the Placebo's or not.... At the time I got a cool laptop out of it and my parents couldn't afford one so... SCORE! I did the study and at the end of it all the Specialist said my hypertension was of no concern and that my body was going through changes and that specifically for me. I am ok. Well Mom had a # and said my heart could blow so back on the meds...... ( I was like a walking zombie on the clonidine ) Once I became the age of 18 (Please note at the age of 18 I never smoked any marijuana) I felt compelled almost as if someone was telling me to stop taking the meds. So I listened to the voices in my head. Didn't tell mom, or dad, I refilled prescriptions and made pills disapear. I FELT GREAT! I had energy again I felt myself again! I'm 30 now. I have a child. She's my princess whom i'd do anything for and a beautiful fiancee' to match my daughter. When my fiancee' found out about the Hypertension and I didn't lie to her about not taking meds..... I thought she was going to kill me.... From the age of 18-30 I became an avid marijuana user to where now I might be able to smoke snoop under. Seriously.... I went back to the doctor with my fiancee to prove to her that I was ok... Boy was I scared.... Man hath no fear like a womans scorn.... I sat and waiting. My doc to diagnosed me at a young age comes in. He's let me have a few times about taking my meds too. Gave me the whole Heart attack scare. Strapped me up to the normal blood pressure measuring device and LOW AND BEHOLD NO HYPERTENSION NO HEART MURMUR~ Well I think my fiancee almost pooped a brick when the doc said that he can't prescibe me my normal meds. BEST FEELING IN THE WORLD~! I almost cried as a child it was terrifying as a MAN I FEEL INVINCIBLE NOW~ Shoulda seen the look on Mummies face as well.

I'm not saying go smoke marijuana. This is just my story with a minor Heart Murmur deatected in a heart that could have exploded, so they say in the blink of an eye.

I have experience working as a nurse in a A&E and if my old lady was to tell me that she had left arm numbness, chest pain and a pain between the shoulder blades and in addition to this told me it was a severe pain with some sweating and anxiety and what not I can tell you that I would give her 300mg of Aspirin and phone 999 because it is very possible that she might be having or have had a heart attack.

I understand you believe me. The only odd thing is she has had problems with her should/shoulder blade for as long as I can remember, along with the numbness/ pain in the chest... Shes been to doctors and they all say thyroid. and then it comes back negative and its back to square one.

make sure they do a 12 lead ECG next time you’re in the hospital because that does not sound like a thyroid based on what you have said to me that is symptomatic of a heart attack or some other kind of cardiac distress.

I have a heart murmur (female, in my 50s). My mother also has it. She's still alive in her 70s. It was explained to me that it wasn't a big deal, it is fairly common, don't worry about it. I have heard that those with heart murmurs have to have antibiotics if they're going to have dental work done, just to be safe.

As far as the heart symptoms your partner is having, women tend to be underdiagnosed, A LOT OF THE TIME, when it comes to heart disease. Panic attacks, anxiety, and stress often accompany it. Doctors still assume that women don't get heart disease, making it a top killer of women.

I worked with a lady,who had never been heavy, didn't have bad eating habits, who started to slow down in her early 50s. She kept complaining of back pain and nausea. She always seemed anxious. Finally it bothered her enough to go into the ER. She was immediately rushed into surgery and a few stents were placed in her arteries, which were nearly occluded and blocked. Women don't have the usual chest pain like men do. It's often anxiety, nausea, and the pain between the shoulder blades.

Please encourge your partner to seek medical attention, and insist they check her for heart problems!!

My eldest was only 7month, 6yr and 13 yr when I was told she had a heart murmur. Each time the nurses went mental, well not mental but overly concerned. I still think it was over the top concerned. Each time she was sent for a ultasound of her heart.
Nothing abnormal detected each time.

My mum died of Aspartame poisoning, leading to heart failure. She had blue lips, my child didn't. I also have the knowledge of a 2nd yr Doctor's degree, so when they told me the first time, at 7 mths I didn't get scared.
I know my child would be alright.

Turns out my child, my other child, myself and my hubby all have Ehlers Danlos Syndrome (EDS). This can cause heart murmurs, as in Mitral valve collapse-in other words the valve isn't as strong as it should be and gets crinkled and lets blood through.
It is definitely caused by poor diet and nutrition. And you could be a health nut and you would still get problems when you have EDS.

You need to keep ALL white and refined food to a minimum, as it uses up magnesium which people who have heart murmurs tend to have much less of.
Use transdermal magnesium (spray on magnesium) on both your child and wife-we do and my Atrial Fibrillation has virtually gone.
I was also Vitamin D deficient due to an injury which kept me indoors. We take multi vitamins and extra Vit D.

Hope that helps.

I've read the responses with interest. First of all, my husband periodically gets a stabbing pain under his shoulder blade. He insists it's his allergies. *shrug*

I have twice gone to the ER with chest pain. Once was many years ago, and they found nothing wrong. This more recent time the pain was accompanied by sweating and chills, lightheadedness, left arm numbness and tingling, and nausea. Again, they found nothing wrong. They checked for heart stuff, pancreas, liver, and I don't know what else. Nothing. However, I will put it to you this way. I wasn't gonna go to the ER because I was afraid of looking stupid if it turned out to be nothing again. My son convinced me by saying, "It's better to look stupid than to be dead." So I went.

Also, I used to have a lot of heart arrhythmias and tachycardia. I supplement with an herbal tincture that has hawthorn berry and angelica extracts, I make it myself. Since then I very rarely get them. Those herbs help with strengthening the heart and improving circulation.
