I've had a pulmonary murmur my whole life as well.. the last 29 years then!   Every Dr. seemed to have a different opinion on what it was... but was documented through childhood and is the same murmur today (no quieter)    The echo I had showed high flow through my pulmonary valve... guess I'll have it forever!   Never caused any problems; cardio didn't think it would ever get worse, its very common.   Though I cant hear mine when I hold my breath or in a quiet room.. have you been evaluated by a doctor?
