Please refer to the detailed answer below

Detailed Answer:
Hello

I have carefully gone through all the reports attached by you of your client and i would like to tell you that first of all the ecg's are normal and there are no arrythmias in any of the ECG.

Coming to the TMT report, its inconclusive because the patients was not able to run for a required amount of time and also he has not completed the minimum required METS. Now this can happen if a patient is physically inactive or obese or sometimes in some coronary artery disease patients also.

If the doesnt have any symptoms then there is nothing to worry for.

An Echocardiography can be advised as further test.

Kind Regards
Dr Bhanu Partap

I have been taking 40mgs of celexa and 100mgs of Lamictal for my bipolar disorder for over 2 years. I was also born with 2 heart defects: ventricular septal defect and mitral valve prolapse. Over the last two months, I have developed an arrhythmia that occurs several times an hour. I'm waiting for the results of my echo, stress test, etc. (done yesterday). Question: What is the likelihood that I'm experiencing side effects of my medication? I've never had any other problems in the years that I've taken Celexa or Lamictal, but I want to make sure I treat this arrhythmia soon. (btw, I'm 32 yrs old) Thanks!

I am almost 60 years old. When I cut the grass (self-propelled mower) walking at its max speed, I get very fatigues, short of breath, and experience tightness in my chest. I use a treadmill 5 days a week and may need to lose 20 pounds. I had a stress EKG 2 years ago and everything was fine. I have high BP, controlled with medication and Type 2 Diabetes controlled with medication. Many times I get arrhythmia during these events. What could this be?

Recently visited cardiologist for abnormally high basal heart rate, ~97 bpm with arrhythmia. Blood pressure within normal range. MD suggested that I start on metoprolol 25 mg STAT. He did ECG, and it was abnormal. But he didn't confirm any diagnosis. I have another appointment after 2 weeks for ecocardiogram, and most likely MRI.



What is the most likely diagnosis? I would appreciate any of the comments.
