Our expert says:
Heart murmurs in childhood often disappear when people reach adulthood, but may remain unchanged, depending on the cause of the murmur.
Heart murmurs may be due to congenital abnormalities, but please remember they may often be “innocent”, in other words they do not necessarily indicate an underlying heart abnormality; For example people who are anaemic often have a heart murmur which is not due to any underlying heart condition.
I would suggest you see a cardiologist for an echocardiogram as well as an ECG. He or she should very soon be able to tell you whether you have an underlying heart condition or simply an “innocent” murmur.
Best wishes, JT.
