Brief Answer:
I would explain as follows:

Detailed Answer:


Welcome and thank you for asking on HCM!

I would like to explain that your grand dad's Holter monitoring may be considered within normal ranges for his age.

He has sustained basic sinus rhythm, and this is very important. There is no complex supraventricular and ventricular arrhythmias. No reported atrio-ventricular conductance disturbances. No ventricular ectopic beats. Just rare atrial ectopic beats, which in fact are acceptable for his age and his previous problem (pulmonary diseases are frequently associated with atrial ectopic beats).

Nevertheless, these rare atrial ectopic beats (aPCS) has not any clinical or prognostic significances. So relax and don't worry about! They are harmless.

Regarding his episodes of bradycardia, I would explain that it is important to review the day-night heart rate trends, as sinus bradycardia is a normal finding while having a long rest and especially when sleeping.

If bradycardia episodes has not any adverse clinical correlations (such as extreme fatigue, lightheadedness, dizziness, etc) there is nothing to worry about.

I would prefer to directly review his ambulatory ECG recording and the final report if it is possible, to assure that everything is OK, as I explained you.

Please, could you upload those results?

I am at your disposal whenever you need.

Hope to have been helpful to you!

Brief Answer:
It is within normal range.

Detailed Answer:


Seems that you have uploaded the same ECG recording several times.

I would explain that the minimal heart rate of 39 bpm is expected at 10:03 PM; so there is nothing to worry about. During rest and sleeping, heart rate may slow down to 30 bpm in normal conditions.

If your grand dad is clinically fine, then no further medical investigation is necessary on this issue.

That's my opinion.

I am a 31 year old female. I have been experiencing dizziness, lightheadedness, and nausea for the last 4 days. Today I noticed a lump on my lower rib right below my left breast. I am a generally healthy person. I went to the ER thinking the worst...they said it was fatty tissue. How does fatty tissue just show up in a day?

So I have had some swelling for a few days now in my ankles. It goes through waves in term of pain and varies from tolerable pain to excruciating pain. The pain seems to come from my ankles and near my hips, making moving almost impossible. The past two days I have developed red lumps, the size of large mosquito bites. They did not hurt at first but today, they are hard and painful. I have not been outside or near anything that could contain bugs that could do harm and ultimately, bite me. I did recently come back from a visit to the midwest and back that was 10 hours each way. I have been to two doctors, in which they took blood and did an ultra sound but I have only received news from one doctor that my blood work is normal (Kidney, Liver, Glucose levels). They did indicate that I did have a slightly higher-then-usual blood pressure which may be an indicator or may be due to my stress and anxiety from this entire situation. I also have been having moments where my ears have been ringing along with lightheadedness. I don t know what it is but I am wondering if its allergy related. Any insight would be fantastic!

Hi, I am on my third day taking Duromine ( Phentermine ) 30mg and I have been experiencing some of the common symptoms associated with taking this eg headache , lightheadedness , dry mouth however I have had ZERO reduction in appetite! I am starving constantly and stopping myself from eating but I have massive hunger pains every 2 hours or so. I am drinking over 2litres of water a day but even this isn t keeping me full. I am currently menstrating and wondering whether this is why I am hungry? Could my appetite be increased because of this and this is why they are not working or should I go back to my gp to get a 40mg prescription? Everyone else on duromine has to force themselves to eat and even forget to eat because they have such little appetite and I m the complete opposite and starving! I m very confused!
