Is abnormal EKG results a matter of concern?

I am 59 yr female, had adnormal ekg by insurance co at home then followed up with pcp and it came back adnormal, also. Referred to Cardio guy and he did a echo and nuclear stress test which said both test were good. I work out about 5-6 days a week and have at 58-60 pulse rate resting. The cardio said the ekg did show some adnormalities but not to be concernce with. I had a heart work up about 3 yrs ago with same cardio and it was good also, they checked the last one in compairson and the ekg there also show some adnormals in it-- nothing to worry with. Still wondering why my ekg is showing adnormal all the way around. Is there any thing to be concerened with. I talke high blood pressure linsiporl 20 m 1 @day. my blood pressure was 117/75 at time of echo and for the stress test started out high at 140 over 80 the 1st number got up to 178 and the bottom went down to 77.... ??????

If I could have a look at your ECG then I would give you a definite answer. However, if your echo and nuclear stress test results came back normal, then absolutely nothing to worry.

Also, you should know that the increase in blood pressure during the stress test is normal, and the top number sometimes can go as high as 200.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

I am a 52 year old white male diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes. My A1C is approximately 5.9%. I had an EKG on November 6th and the EKG showed sinus bradycardia, a slight intraventricular delay, minor inferior repolarization disturbance, and the report stated ECG without significant abnormalities . On November 7th, I ran 2 miles in 17 minutes and 30 seconds and felt OK. Question: Based upon above, should I be worried about anything?

Hello, Over the past 6 weeks I have been having heart palpitations, along with rapid heart rate (90-110 resting) and hand tremors. I am an otherwise healthy 29 yr old women. I saw my dr and he did ekg and labs. My blood work came back normal, and my ekg showed incomplete rt bundle branch block. I just saw a cardiologist today, and he ordered a holter monitor and echo. He doesn't seemed concerned with my symptoms. He listened to my heart rate sitting (in the 80's) then had me stand quickly and it jumped up past 100. He says this makes him think I may be lacking sodium?? He says I should eat more salty foods. I feel like I do, however, I watch my intake and aviod salt when possible. I really don't think I am lacking salt in my diet. Do you think the lack of over salted foods could cause these symtoms suddenly? Thank you...

Hello, Yesterday I had an incident where after I lifted weights my heart rate would not drop. Well after ten minutes I panicked and had to go to the hospital in an ambulance where my pulse was 140/150 sustained and started to drop after about 15 minutes (25 minutes overall). BP 140/90. I had a yogurt in the morning and a banana to eat, and lately I have been noticing that I have begun getting panicky or had rapid heartbeat after lifting only. Typically it goes away but yesterday was different. My EKG was fine and my BP dropped to 131/75 within a half hour. I also have had some heart palpitations lately, and have not felt as strong at the gym. Havent really had shortness of breath or chest pains, although I think during one palpitation I had a slight pain in left chest. I am 33 years old 160 and physically active. Do you have any idea why only lifting would cause panic, and then this episode with my heart. I have an appointment Monday with a cardiologist but wanted to touch base firs
