  • Murmurs

    Does having a heart murmur indicate obstructive HCM? I don't suffer from chest angina, dyspnea, nor fatigue, but I believe you can indicate a murmur.

    Re: Murmurs

    GD, a heart murmur can be apparent for many things including obstructed HCM.
    A heart murmur is not always bad.
    Have you been looked at by an HCM specialist??
    That would be the best thing to do as it would eleviate any question about a heart murmur and HCM.
    Every great thing that has ever happened since the beginning of time has started as a single thought in someones mind.
    So if you are capable of thought then you are capable of great things
    Good luck and stay well.

      Murmurs can mean something significant or nothing to worry about. Have you had an echo yet? If so what did it show? The Echo is how you will rule in or out HCM.
