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.

I am having constant thudding heartbeats with irregular or skipped beats.
This has been going on for the last five hours . I can't sleep. It has been bad for the last two days but not constant as it is now . I'm worried. I can't fall asleep . I seem to lurch awake even as I drift off with another powerful rushing feeling of thudding in my chest and more skipped beats.
I have been complaining to my doctor for 12 years of irregular beats. I have had several ECG and scans and they always tell me there's nothing wrong with the functioning of my heart but I can't ignore these symptoms that don't go away. I believe my stressing over them makes them worse but it's a vicious circle. I am meant to be on Citalopram but took one tablet and woke up in the middle of the night clenching my jaw with skipping beats . Looking up the side effects/contra indications it says should not take if suffer any heart rhythms problems. Why is my doctor giving me these ? So I daren't take them for fear of making things worse but I do need an anxiolytic as prescribed.

Hi, I am 25 years old female. I had a sudden rapid heart beating followed by rapid breath taking and then my feet get cold. I have also headache and a bit nausea. I went to the hospital few days ago and they check me and says the lung function and ECG result are normal. The USG on the stomach also fine. The only thing they found is that I have low iron concentration in my blood (but not too low they said) and they give me iron pills. At first 4 days I am getting better but then I felt the first symptom again. Could you give me some explanation about my condition? And what should I do to prevent it occurs again? Thank you.
