I am a 54 year old female and have known for several years that I had a heart murmur.

I am not too sure about that, maybe one of our members might be more familiar with that.
I will check into it and see.
Welcome to the Heart Health Board!
Do any of regulars have anything to add?...Please feel free to chime in!

This is one Link I found below but there may be others.
It had a lot of interesting information.
Had a diagram of your heart.
You mentioned you are going for a stress test. Have you had one before?
I have but it wasn't no where near as bad as my "Imagination" had me believing.
Sounds like you have a really thorough new doctor.
Sending your prayers and positive thoughts.
Please feel free to come back anytime.

So glad you found the article helpful.
I think sometimes it's the "Fear of the Unknown" that scares us and stresses us the MOST.
My heart guy is very good at explaining things and he will answer ANY question, no matter how small or "dumb" it seems.
It's very good your new doctor wants new tests run. She seems very thorough, I would like that.
I will try to find out some more information.
I am sure she would answer any questions you have.
Glad you are staying on the board.
I know I found it very helpful after my heart attack and everyone on the board was wonderfully supportive.
It helps to feel like you aren't going through this alone.
Welcome back!
