I spoke of my husband earlier his issues with chronic pain. I am starting to think maybe the pain is connected to his heart issues. Is that possible that a heart condition can result in chronic pain? My husband has a heart murmur and lately when I listen to his chest it doesn't sound remotely like a beating heart (before I'd hear a little skip or double beat every now and then), it makes all kinds sounds, gurgling sounds, stopping too long, sounds like raindrops falling on a tin roof, aggressive fluttering just a variety of mysterious sounds with a few seconds of normal heart beats in the middle (much less normal than not). He's had his sister check too and she noticed as well. Sometimes he has high blood pressure, sometimes normal but its not always high and is normal right now. He'd been on some pain meds that were supposed to help the rhythm as well but all the pain meds haven't helped his pain and made him so exhausted he can hardly get out of bed (even the one that was supposed to give him energy) so he had to stop taking them and I think that's when his heart murmur got much worse. He's going to look at his heart today but my question is can this heart thing be giving him the migraines, joint pain, and trouble breathing?
