Brief Answer:
Kindly upload your ECG report...

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Can you please upload the full ECG, so I can analyze myself. Sometimes, the ECG is interpreted by a machine and the interpretation sometimes is not correct. That's why it is necessary to get it interpreted by cardiologist (specialist).

Your symptoms might indicate possible heart problems, therefore, I highly recommend to run further cardiac tests apart ECG:
- cardiac echo
- stress test
- chest X-ray
- abdominal ultrasound

to determine the right diagnosis.

Hope it was of help! Looking forward to have your ECG in!

thank you so much, please bear with me Dr.Shehu
can a cardiologist tell you a scan is normal when it is actually stamped Abnormal,
I had to start researching myself because doctors couldn't cure me, I am doing very well and learning about my rare conditions but they are putting every hurdle in front of me to stop. sorry if this is an awkward question but I need to know, I will explain it to you if it would help to know the circumstaces .
Doctor i'v experienced a terrible time with my health, and been running to doctors for many years, now i am getting somewhere they literally close doors on me,
i don,t think they want to get answers, because it would show them up in a very bad light. but i find it very frightening when they wouldn't tell the truth about my 4 EKGs, i am totally on my own and have no one to turn to, i hope i haven't went on too much.
kind regards
iris.

Detailed Answer:
Hi back,

Thank you for following up.

When the ECG is interpreted from the machine, it happens frequently to get falsely abnormal results. That's why it is a must to get the ECG interpreted by a human doctor (cardiologist, internist).

I highly suggest to run other cardiac tests are mentioned earlier.

I understand your situation. You have all the rights to get answers for your questions. I will try to help you through the process, but, first, need to have and analyze the reports myself.

All the best!

I'm a 21 yr old female having constant heart palpitations. I know what they are and what they feel like some are stronger than others but I feel them all the time. I don't have insurance so I haven't seen a cardiologist. I don't smoke, drink anything with caffeine, and only drink alcohol occasionally. Some doctors have said possible mitral valve prolapse. I'm just wondering what could be causing so many palpitations and also I have had them since I was 18 they are just getting much worse I also have chest pain just about every day.
