Working out, does it cause issues with a benign heart murmur?
Patient : I'm 44 year old female with a heart murmur since birth that has never given me any issues. I'm 60 lbs overweight but am working on that issue. I've been working out 5 days a week for the past 2 months. i'm slowly losing weight and building muscle and endurance. However, lately, I've noticed tingling and numbness in my left hand when I'm working out hard. Any idea of what could be causing this. No chest pain noted. Thank you
