Abnormal EKG Doctor says Every thing is Fine

should I be worried. . . The other night, I went to the ER. I was feeling shaky, weak, racing heart tingly. I had just had a total thyroidectomy on 8/4 and had some calcium issues. I thought I was having another low calcium attack. The doctor ran some blood work and did an EKG. He said that his diagnosis was stress and anxiety and gave me an ativan. The EKG showed that there were abnormalities, but the doctor said that the abnormalities were normal for me (how would he know that? I hadn t had an ekg done there before) and that it was nothing to worry about. Of course I m freaking out. Here s what the report says: Rate: 97 PR 152 QRSD 100 QT 356 QTc 453 --Axis-- P 40 QRS 23 T -22 sinus rhythm..........normal P axis,V-rate 50- 99 Probable left atrial abnormality..............P 50mS, -0.10mV V1 Abnormal T, Consider Ischemia, Inferior...........T 90

I'm confused, I thought I answered this on Sat. I would rather see your ecg because I seldomly believe the ecg machines interpretation. Your ecg is normal except for "some inferior wall ischemia" what are these ischemic changes or how severe are they, I can't comment. You inferior leads are leads 2,3, AVF.I would hope that they checked your electrolytes, calcium,magnesium,phosphorus and checked your cardiac enzymes, and did a thyroid panel..Are you taking any medications at the time they did this ecg., and most important was this ecg done with chest pain? Bring it to your family Dr, I'm curious about what he thinks,take care, Donna
