Should I take Doctors Advice

Posted By Donald on July 26, 1998 at 01:46:19:







I am a 27yr male. I recently  pinched a nerve in my left hand. During the examination the Doctor asked " How long have you had the heart murmur?".
MY response was "What heart murmur?".She listened for a moment and then said not to worry about it. At the time I did as she told me. Now 8 months later I,m reading in a magizine that maybe My Doctor should have done more than listen with stethoscopes. I'm wondering if I should have more tests done to evaluate the murmur. Can a Doctor tell alot about a murmur just by listening ?
