Hello, I had an abnormal ECG-ST & T segment downsloping in 2-3 aVF, V4-V-6. The doctor said it looked worse than the one I had 6 monthes prior. So, I was sent for an Echo Stress test- Results: Excellent exercise capacity 13.9 METS- QRS pattern in lead V1-V-2. Approximately 1-1.5 further inferolateral ST depression over the resting abnormality. No arrhythmia. It stated Otherwise, normal echo. No indication of exercise induced ischemia, or septal infarction. I worry about this everyday. Should I have further testing, my cardiologist said to see him again in 2 years. F-49 yrs. Thank-you.

My son is 14 years old normally healthy not over weight and was diagnosed last year with high blood pressure the top number runs high but bottom number runs low. He had no problems until last year they also found he has a premature heart beat which they have told me not to worry about well i am worried they have him on Claudine 1mg tablets for blood pressure and it makes him very tired. They have ran all types of test but say they can find no cause for the high number in the blood pressure. I m not happy with this answer i want to know what is causing the blood pressure and premature heart beat when he never had it before last year. Can you help?
