Hello all! So my topic of discussion is obbiously the title of the thread. I found out this morning that my 4 year old son Dominic has left axis deviation. Now I am only semi-smart in this subject of matter, who am I kidding I don't know crap about this. But what I do know is in most cases it is not severe. What I also found out is that he does suffer from a heart murmur, and when I try to link the two together I find no information on the internet whatsoever. However, the reason I'm trying to see if these two are linked is because on this one site i stumbled upon at www.m.webmd.com... states that mitral valve prolapse, or Mitral valve or aortic stenosis can be a cause of this condition. That being said, your mitral and aortic valves are on the left side of your heart which is why I bring up my question does left axis deviation cause heart murmurs or is it caused by them. Maybe this information will help me better understand his diagnosis which when it comes to the circulatory system, it is a science that I know little to nothing about ( I'm an Aries and I hate to admit that haha). Can any medical buffs for doctors on this site give me a little insight to this information? It would be much appreciated because like I said I've tried searching for this information all morning and come up with zilch. I know there is no such thing as an overprotective father but I know how some people in the medical field can negate information when it comes to something important depending on the topic, however I don't feel this is conspiracy like fluoride or cancer medicine so feel free to help me out! Thanks everybody
