Re: thanks zuza
Regarding heart murmurs, some murmurs indicate an abnormality in the structure of the valves or walls of the heart, or of the major blood vessels. However, more often than not they can be, as yours seems to have been, clinically insignificant.. Very often doctors pick up murmurs in totally normal hearts, and they truly are nothing to be concerned about.
A doc picked up one in me when I was twenty. My li'l ol' "murmur" has been long gone for years!
A good doc can tell the difference between different types of murmurs with just his/her stethoscope! Sounds like you had something VERY COMMON ...a functional (innocent) murmur which affects at least 80% of kids at some point during childhood.
As for your systolic BP, you're right, it's slightly elevated...Not sure why. Anxiety...fatigue..stress....running around...on the fly...infection... being run down in any way...
Is the only place you get your readings at this care center? And what exactly IS this care center? Does a nurse take your BP? if so, she may not be taking it correctly..I can't TELL you how many so-called medical "professionals" don't have a clue on how to do this properly.
Might be a good idea (for your own peace if mind) to invest in a good home BP monitor.
Best place to get accurate resting BP is at home in your own environment.
