Hi I'm a 28 year old white American LPN, not overweight, working in humanitarian relief in Africa. I started noticing about 4 months ago that my heartbeat felt unusually strong at certain times, as if it were overcompensating for a certain level of stress of activity, and quite often I will feel rather SOB. I happened to notice what I perceived as a very loud murmur in (i believe) the first heart sound over the region of the right atrium/tricuspid area, center of the chest and slightly to the left. It's only present though when my heart feels like it's overcompensating, it is very loud and there is an obvious lub-wooosh to be heard even with a $20 stethoscope. I had an echo and EKG done with only trace/mild mitral regurgitation found, and I'm told heart sounds are absolutely normal at rest. The climax of my story seems to be that I've been having extra beats as many as 20 per day, not too many, but some have been with near syncope, and I've never had these before. Does this sound concerning.
