My son has been on Stattera for a few years, and for a while he had bad chest pains. We went to the hospital emergency room one night, but left because the pain had subsited. Our doctor suggested that we try treating him for heart burn, since all the test came backk ok. We even went to a heart doctor. We have been treating him with over-the-counter heartburn medicine, and when the pains come, he drinks a sode and burps, and this helps. Good luck.

Strattera has caused rapid heart rate in some patients.

A heart murmur can be indicative of an abnormality with one of the heart valves, which can indeed cause fatigue.

caused by blood flowing through the chambers and valves of the heart or the blood vessels near the heart. Sometimes anxiety, stress, fever, anemia, overactive thyroid, and pregnancy will cause innocent murmurs

Heart murmurs mean that some of your blood is going from your right ventricle to your left ventricle without going through your lungs. That could cause a person not to get enough oxygen, which could cause shortness of breath, which could cause fatigue. Did the doctor that heard the heart murmurs make any suggestions such as see a cardiologist? If he did, why didn't you follow up on his suggestions?

Incomplete closint of any one of the 4 valves may cause a murmur

Most children with innocent heart murmurs grow out of them by the time they reach adulthood. Severe causes of heart murmurs may progress to severe symptoms and death

In themselves no, heart murmurs however can point to something more serious which can potentially be fatal. Most heart murmurs are innocent do not indicate anything wrong, however some cause the heart to work harder then normal or can point to a serious problem. Each case is unique and should be looked at by a physician to determine the best course of action.

Some people have a heart condition called a heart murmur. Heart murmurs are irregular heartbeats. Most people grow out of heart murmurs.

Those which occur during relaxation of the heart between beats are called diastolic murmurs. Those which occur during contraction of the heart muscle are called systolic murmurs

Pathologic heart murmurs may indicate the presence of a serious heart defect. They are louder, continual, and may be accompanied by a click or gallop

Other heart sounds, such as a quiet "whoosh," are produced by "murmurs." These sounds are produced when there are irregularities in the path of blood flow through the heart.

Symptoms of significant heart murmurs are excessive sweating with minimal exertion, dizziness, chest pain, fatigue, swelling or sudden weight gain and fainting. Some other symptoms associated with significant heart murmurs are pale or blueish skin tone, shortness of breath, enlarged liver or neck veins.

Very loud heart murmurs and those with clicks or extra heart sounds should be evaluated further. Infants with heart murmurs who do not thrive, eat, or breath properly and older children who lose consciousness suddenly or are intolerant to exercise

Yes, heart murmurs in dogs are hereditary. Generally any heart problems that the mother or the father of a dog has is usually passed down to the puppies.

Mixing Lexapro and Strattera can cause a few side effects. The Lexapro can cause the Strattera to build up in the blood more. This causes dry mouth, sleep problems, dizziness, loss of appetite and heart palpitations.

There are two types of heart murmurs; innocent and abnormal. Innocent murmurs are common and harmless. They can be caused by pregnancy, fever, or even physical activity. Abnormal heart murmurs are much more serious. They are most commonly caused by congenital heart disease, which may be something like a cardiac shunt or a hole in the heart. However, abnormal murmurs can also be caused by infections such as endocarditis.

Angina is chest pain cause by reduced blood flow to the heart.

Yes. You can live with some innocent murmurs in your heart. But then murmur is an indication of complete heart check up including some investigations. Some murmurs can be sign of serious heart problem.

User Avatar

Some heart murmurs are continually present; others happen only when the heart is working harder than usual, including during exercise or certain types of illness

Some causes of heart murmurs can include a congenital defect in a heart valve, a hole in the wall of the heart, endocarditis, and many other medical conditions. Some symptoms of a heart murmur are shortness of breath, fainting, and pain in the chest area.

Yes. Functional flow murmurs sometimes occur in youth/adolescence but disappear by the time of adulthood. (This is not true of pathological heart murmurs, however.)

User Avatar

If you are referring to the Heart, the abnormal sounds would be called "murmurs". But if you are referring to the Lungs they would be called "adventitious breath sounds".

No. ECGs detect heart rhythm problems. Heart murmurs are detected with the stethoscope. Murmurs can indicate a heart valve problem, for which an echocardiogram is the study of choice, in order to diagnose the extent of the problem accurately.

If you are wondering for a child, about 1 out of every 2 children have these. Heart murmurs are whooshing sounds that emanates when the blood is swooshing through the heart. It will go away as a child grows up. Adults also can have heart murmurs. If it continues for more than a month, go ask for professional help from a doctor.
