General & Family Physician Dr. Parthipan K's  Response
Hi elaine,

Abnormal stress ECG means that there is something wrong with your Heart's capability to cope up during exercise due to heart rhythm abnormalities or a blockade in the blood vessels supplying the heart and it requires further evaluation with stress echocardiogram or coronary angiogram to predict the future risk of heart attack. Mild mitral regurgitation is completely harmless but it does not mean that it is normal and present in all individuals...
My wishes for your quick recovery
