Our expert says:
Thanks for your question. Your heart has been thoroughly investigated in the past and your ECG and sonar were both normal, so it is likely that anaemia was the cause of the murmur and we can be sure your heart itself is not the cause of your symptoms.
If you are faint and tired all the time and have recently been pregnant, then it is quite possible that you are still anaemic. To check this out you should have a full blood count and iron studies done by your local pathology laboratory. Your symptoms might also be due to or aggravated by the demands of looking after a young child.
Once you have had the iron studies please go back to your family doctor and discuss the problem with him.
I hope things go better for you.
