Re: Just back from 6mo ped visit--heart murrmer

I was born with one of the "louder" murmurs and after a pile of tests they finally figured out that I have the Mitral Valve prolapse and an Aortic prolapse. (Not sure if the Aortic one is actually called that). Both ds and dd were born with them but they both are fine now. I believe that ds's was gone by 14 months and dd by 8 months. Ds also had GERD-really really bad! Once he started gaining weight it took a little while for him to catch up but they do eventually. It wouldn't hurt to have a specialist check it out just to be sure. My dh's cousins dd has the genetic type of arthritis. Unfortunately her mother is an idiot and didn't figure it out until she was 18 months and wouldn't walk-when they made her walk the poor thing would scream in pain. She's on meds now and is doing really well. Hopefully the shoulder/arm thing will turn out to be nothing to worry about. Good Luck
