When I was pregnant with my son I found out I had a heart murmur. I was in the army and decided to seperate because of my pregnancy, anyways before we got married I was having chest problems. When ever I would run my arms would go numb and when I was finished I had trouble catching my breath, my chest hurt, I was dizzy, my legs felt weak and it was hard to stay standing. No matter what lelevation, I could be near the beach or in the moutians and I would have this problem at both locations. I informed the doctor that was doing my physical and she had an echo done on my heart. They found I had a heart murmur, I told my husband and he swears up and down that they got my sons heart beat, and nothing is wrong. However, I have always and still do have trouble going up a small flight of stairs because I get winded, but him being a 'know-it-all' swears to god that they got my sons heart beat. How they got it in my cheast I dont know. He also claims that hot foods cause heart murmurs. Is there any way I can get him to listen to me? He acts like I fake everything even if its medically documented.
