Abnormal EKG Doctor says Every thing is Fine

should I be worried. . . The other night, I went to the ER. I was feeling shaky, weak, racing heart tingly. I had just had a total thyroidectomy on 8/4 and had some calcium issues. I thought I was having another low calcium attack. The doctor ran some blood work and did an EKG. He said that his diagnosis was stress and anxiety and gave me an ativan. The EKG showed that there were abnormalities, but the doctor said that the abnormalities were normal for me (how would he know that? I hadn t had an ekg done there before) and that it was nothing to worry about. Of course I m freaking out. Here s what the report says: Rate: 97 PR 152 QRSD 100 QT 356 QTc 453 --Axis-- P 40 QRS 23 T -22 sinus rhythm..........normal P axis,V-rate 50- 99 Probable left atrial abnormality..............P 50mS, -0.10mV V1 Abnormal T, Consider Ischemia, Inferior...........T 90

I'm confused, I thought I answered this on Sat. I would rather see your ecg because I seldomly believe the ecg machines interpretation. Your ecg is normal except for "some inferior wall ischemia" what are these ischemic changes or how severe are they, I can't comment. You inferior leads are leads 2,3, AVF.I would hope that they checked your electrolytes, calcium,magnesium,phosphorus and checked your cardiac enzymes, and did a thyroid panel..Are you taking any medications at the time they did this ecg., and most important was this ecg done with chest pain? Bring it to your family Dr, I'm curious about what he thinks,take care, Donna

I am a 33 year old male with low cholestrol and low blood pressure . I run 2 to 3 miles every day and lift weights five days a week. Five years ago I had an anxiety attack and I was sent home with a holter monitor. Upon review of the monitor the doctor told me that there was nothing abnormal except that I had periods of a slow heartbeat. Three weeks ago I switched to a new doctor and she requested my medical charts. She reviewed my holter monitor readings and discovered small Q waves. She had me come in for another EKG and the resultls were the same as the EKG from 5 years ago. She has ordered an echocardiogram and i m still awaiting the procedure. She stated that it s most likely nothing because the EKG has not changed in a 5 year span. She never really gave me an explanation as to what this could mean, so i m seeking some more information. I get really anxious about my health, so i ve been feeling really stressed through this. Any information you could provide would be greatly appreciated.

yes, i went to the doctor yesterday to have blood work and an ekg done for prior oral surgery and while the nurse was doing the ekg she began asking if i had chest pains or shortness of breath. I told her no and they insisted i go to the emergency room and gave me 4 aspirins while sitting there. I went to the emergency room and they redid the ekg and it said abnormal but nothing like the other one showed. They did blood work and chest xray and everything came back ok. He said the ekg machine may have over read it. Does this make sense? They sent me home and told me to follow up with my dr.

My grandmother has had a pacemaker for about 4 yrs or so. During her last check up in June they told her it looked like she had about a year left on it. How will I tell when it s about up? The reason I am asking is because over the past few days she just falls asleep at the most random time. Example...standing up...in the car (which she never does) What I am getting at is especially today she has slept alot and it reminds me of how she was being when she had to get the pacemaker for the first time. Do you think I should go to the ER tonight?

a month ago I had SSCP radiating to neck, shoulder, forearm and tinglng of left hand. I was at rest (doing anesthesia) and it lasted 4 minutes. I have other vasospasm conditions and think this may be just coronary spasm. It happened again 2 and 4 days later but much less intensity. Today I ran some strips on our ekg machine and in addition to my usual LAFB, I have flipped t s in 3 and AVF. Is this inferior wall ischemia? Is it time to see a cardiologist?

I am looking at a ECG recently taken of a family member. I am only an EMT-B, and do not have sufficient ALS-level training in properly interpreting an ECG. At the top of this copy, i see that it says, Sinus Rhythm, Septal Myocardial Infarction, Possible Left Atrial Enlargement and Abnormal ECG. I wasn t the one who my family member to get this done, and I m upset I wasn t told about it. She is a 78y/o Female. Should I be concerned? If requested, I will scan and upload a copy of the actual ECG print
