marfan syndrome

my brother has had marfan syndrome all his life, and has suffered quite badly. i was checked when i was younger but did not have it. Now i am 18 and for the past two years have had frequent chest pains, like little niggles but the doctors always ignored them and said i was too young for further tests. I am 4 months pregnant now and at a check up today the doctor said i have a heart murmur and is sendin me for tests. I am very worried, could you please explain in more detail and is it possible i could have something like my brother? my chest pains are quite frequent, it feels like my heart squeezes tight and i get a sharp pain, sometime over to my shoulder. it is quite uncomfortable when it happens at times and do get hort of breathe quite often when it happens.
