Dear patient,

It is not normal to have elevated enzymes in a young person such as yourself. Further investigation is needed, in the form of a stress test, a Holter monitoring (to try to correlate with your palpitations) and then decide further after that. Even young patients may need an angiogram to look at the arteries of the heart directly.

Yours truly,
