Patient Comments: Heart Murmur - Causes

If known, what is the cause of your heart murmur? Please discuss your symptoms and experience.

Comment from: Julie, 45-54 Female (Patient) Published: May 30

The cause of my murmur was initially mitral valve regurgitation, which was diagnosed right after I gave birth to my 3rd child, at age 27. After several tests it was determined that no treatment was necessary unless the condition worsened. I was recently tested again and the condition morphed into mitral value prolapse, for which I take Bystolic (a beta blocker) to help control the premature ventricular contractions (palpitations). I sometimes still get dizzy and experience chest pain.
