Hi I have had 6 ECG's, 2 chest X-rays, bloods and a 24 hour ecg. I also suffer with anxiety. My first ecg at a&e said abnormal possible left ventricular hypertrophy. However both a&e said this was due to computer sensitivity and when they did the calculations manually and looked at chest X-rays it was a normal ecg. My 24hr ecg showed 2 sve/ve which I understand to be normal and everyone has these each day. What concerns me is as one ecg said possible left ventricular hypertrophy does this mean I should be referred for an echo to check for structural damage or have my GP ruled this out looking at ecg? Also as I have sve/ve is this dangerous if I have left ventricular hypertrophy. My 5 ecg's following the first one over the next six months all showed as normal and my 24hr ecg showed as normal except for 2 sve/ve. Thanks

I am a 56 year old male. I had CABG X 3 on XXXXXXX 23rd 2014. I had a echocardiogram/Doppler and my Aortic root was 4.0 CM My Dr. Said this was normal on his report for me.

Hi yesterday my dad had an IV Magnex injection and within say 10-15 minutes of the administration of this drug, he developed generalized discomfort with profuse sweating, palpitation, escalation in BP, and abnormal EKG, repeated 3 times with findings of Left Ventricular Hypertrophy, what could be the possible cause??

i just had an ECG vent rate 64 bpm pr internal 158 ms qrs duration 90 ms qt/qtc/388/400 ms P-R-T axes 63 79 55 I am a 39 year old healthy female who is 5'7" 140 lbs. I work out 3x a week. I was told I had perfect blood pressure ( but I forgot what it was) The "unconfirmed" diagnosis was: Normal sinus rhythm, Posible left atrial enlargement, left ventricular hypertrophy and ABNORMAL ECG. Do these numbers make sense OR could the doctor/ resident who saw me be biased because I told him I take adderall and my mother dies of a massive (unexpected) heart attack in her late 60's? This matters to me b/c I don't want shrink to take me off meds. My blood work comes in next week. Thanks for your analysis. I uploaded the EKG and noticed they had me noted as a male though I am a female. Thank in advance for your opinion.
