Thanks for the query.

Doctors refer to a Cardiologist after an abnormal finding on resting ECG. Abnormal ECG at rest does not mean significant all time. Hence I do not think there is a reason to stop exercising before you XXXXXXX a Cardiologist.

Please note if you have any symptoms or discomfort while on regular exercise, if so please discuss about them during your Cardiologist appointment. Meantime check if you have any significant family history of heart disease before you XXXXXXX the Cardiologist.

Hope I answered your question. Please accept if you do not have any more queries.
