I was just told that i have a heart murmur, i have a slight lag in part of my heart but my docter said that i should be ok. Apparently i was born with it. I was just wondering if anyone else has any kind of heart murmur, so do you?

Yes I have a heart murmur so I went to a specialist just to make sure that it would be ok, most people who are born with heart murmurs and still have them have what is called a Functioning Heart Murmur meaning, it's no different than having a heart without the murmur, for me, my heart murmur just made my resting heartbeat a lot lower which is actually good for athletes. So, ways to tell without a doctor:
1. Do you get easily dizzy when exercising?
2. Have you ever passed out during or after exercise?
3. do you often or ever lose vision or hearing during exercise?

if the answer to all of the above is "No" you have a functioning heart murmur and it is nothing to worry about, but you should still keep an eye on how you feel during and after exercise.

Hope it helps

I'm much older than you guys. I also have a murmur. Mine is from an eccentric valve. No biggy.

I had one when I was born, but the doctor told me he thinks I grew out of it. I think I still have one because I feel the symptoms that were listed below. I often get dizzy after working out so maybe I will ask him next time I go to the doctor.

you are fine, if it was a huge problem, you would have noticed form playing paintball.

I was told I had a heart murmur as a child, and I've played football for about 8 years now, and paintball for about 3, and nothing bad has ever happened, so as long as your doctor says your fine, you should be good to go.

yup, i was told that i have a very slight heart murmer. the only problems i feel is every once in a while my heart/chest has this undescribable THING. the best way to describe it is it skips a beat, or a slight contraction or a straining feeling. idk, its very hard to describe. and sometimes when i stand up to fast i loose sight and hearing for maybe 2 seconds. wow, when i wright all this down it sounds like i have a serious problem... hope i dont.
