Welcome to Health Care Magic

     Normal Stress ECG and ECHO practically exclude heart disease. You are very young and that you can do treadmill regularly is itself very reassuring. Your symptoms really have nothing to do with heart disease and are obviously due to anxiety and posture.

     QT is influenced by heart rate, electrolytes, drugs and so on. It does not cause pain but may at times contribute to rhythm changes. You need to do nothing except follow up

     Vitamin D deficiency is fairly common – nothing to worry. Continue the replacement.

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck

T wave changes that are not associated with other ECG changes are usually called non-specific – asymmetrical, not associated with ST segment changes or Ventricular hypertrophy and so on. They can be from changes in electrolytes, conduction pathways and so on - but most commonly, there is nothing wrong and is often seen in some normal people.

If you have any symptom, see as soon as possible.
Otherwise, one year is a reasonable time.

All the best

Any thoughts? Thank you for your time.

My husband started having shortness of breath last August. Around the same time he had a vitamin D deficiency. Our doctor immediately sent him to a cardiologist who did a stress test. He found nothing to be wrong. This continued and we went to see a lung specialist who did a CT scan. Found nothing to be wrong. At the same time my husband started to lose some of his taste. That got worse and at the present time he asks me to smell his skin. I did and I do detect a slight smell. It is not familiar. My husband says he smells a horrible smell coming from inside him. We did see an ENT who found nothing wrong. We went to an endocrinologist and eventually a parathyroid was removed. Prior to that he was so fatigued he could hardly get into bed. After the surgery he wasn't as fatigued but still he not getting better. Since August he has lost around 35 lbs. We went to a neurologist who took extensive tests including an MRI. He saw some evidence of Myasthenia Gravis. When he gave him Mestonon, my husband was going to the bathroom alot and had a crampy stomach. He did not feel better and the medication was stopped. We tested for poisoning. Results are negative. We don't know where to turn because all the scans come back negative and the blood only showed the hyperparathroid. I'm desparate for help.

I started feeling a strong chest pain mid-way through taking a drink. I had no trouble breathing during the

pain it was a very griping pain. While this was happing I thought that I might be having a heart attack

but considering my age I realiest it was highly unprobable. After a few seconds the pain stoped then

I was sure it was not an heart attack. What could this be? I am a type one diabetic with a vitamin D deficiency and slightly a rased cholesterol all of them are being treated. I hope that info helps at least

My name is danielle and I am 23 years old and I have this bump on my breat bone since I was 14/15. I went to different doctors to figure out what it actually was. The last doctor I saw about this told me and my mother it was just overgrown cartilage. But it has grown bigger over the years and the pain is severe at times. My ribcage at times feels like it's being restricted. I can not even wear a bra because it is uncomfortable. I have recently been told on a separate matter that I have lipoma. And I have a vitamin D deficiency. I also have very high cholesterol,but that is because of genetics. Please please tell me what I can do. Thank you.
