Monday I went to my doctor and she did an EKG. It showed that I have a few irregular heartbeats or extra heartbeats. She said most likely that it is just anxiety, but she wants to do a 24 holter monitor this coming Monday. I guess my question is do any of you think I have anything to worry about? The reason why I went to the doctor back in February when on my symptoms started was because I was having palpitations. They are not all the time just once in awhile and not severe, just scares me when they happen. I do not get out of breath, but sometimes my heart just starts racing for no apparent reason. I usually take my pulse and it never seems to go over 98 bpm when that happens. My doctor also said I have white coat hypertension because at the office it always seems to run 150/100-142/82, but at home I always get readings of 110/70-118/75. I guess I am pretty worried also because heart disease does run in my family. In fact, my father had to have bypass surgery 3 years ago. Oh, back if February my doctor did do a complete exam including blood work and my tests all came back great. No diabetes, no high cholesterol, or any of that. I am 33 years old and in pretty good shape. I weigh 139, and excercise for an hour everyday. Although I do not eat always the best. Another thing that scares me is when I was in my early twenties I had a doctor tell me my cholesterol was really high for my age, I do not remember my exact numbers back then, but being young and stupid I did not really do anything about it for a year or two. Do you think that could be causing me problems today? I am sorry for the long post but as you can probably tell I am really worried. I guess I don't know what could be causing the irregular heartbeats? Any insight would be greatly appreciated.
