I have a very loud aortic valve heart murmur, and I also have angina pain in my chest, back and arm. Does the heart valve murmur have anything to do with the chect pain?

Hi:

"Does the heart valve murmur have anything to do with the chest pain?"

It may/could, mainly if there is aortic valve regurgitation (leakage) or aortic valve stenosis (narrowing) present, and depending on the severity of it.

A heart murmur itself, is a turbulent sound, which may/can come and go throughout life, and can be caused by various factors and conditions. The presence of a heart murmur does not necessarily indicate a disease or problem, and all heart problems do not cause heart murmurs.

Chest pain, stationary or radiating elsewhere, with or without accompanying symptoms, has various causes, cardiac (note: angina, especially unstable angina, can often lead to a dreaded heart attack) and non-cardiac, which includes, but is not limited to, pulmonary, gastrointestinal, musculoskeletal, and psychological/psychogenic.

ALWAYS be proactive in your health care and treatment. Most important, communicate/interact well with your doctors. Best of luck down the road of life.

Take care,
