Heart murmurs and diving etc...

Whilst at the quack's for a check-up to do a diving course, he informed me I had a systolic heart murmur. I've googled (of course) but wondered if anyone else had experience so I can set my anxiety 'defcon' level appropriately! I have to have an 'echocardiogram'- potential problems for SCUBA? Thanks mefiers...

Film about the girlfriend of a heart donor

Do you know this film? A girl whose dead boyfriend's heart has been transplanted, tries to find the transplant recipient. She arranges a meeting but the recipient turns out to be a fat, middle-aged man. She stays hidden, but follows him for a while, then eventually steps off a tram/streetcar and walks off. The film might be Italian. [more inside]

Ech, you're giving me a coronary!

The "new, state of the art" cardio machines at my gym always tell me my heart rate is unreasonably high (170 beats per minute) even though I'm working at a level where I can still maintain a breathy conversation. Occasionally, the machine will say my heart rate is something totally wacky, like 220. [more inside]

Tacky Cardigans are Spooky!

Anyone ever had a tachycardia? I'm in a brunch line, not stressed, not active, just standing there talking. My heart rate shoots up. My dad, a doc, is with me. Says my pulse is 150 bpm. It gradually decreases over the next 15 minutes. The doc today says it's weird for a tachycardia to lead to a pulse shooting up so high. I'm scheduled to wear a halter monitor for a day, but outside that, he says there's not much that can be done. Why do these occur, and how do I keep them from occurring again? Also, if I have lots of stress in my life (just finished a PhD, new very high stress job), can it cause my pulse to race at a time when I am not stressed? Any stories, experiences, information is appreciated. (About me: 35, female, in good health, not overweight, yet not athletic).
