Question Abnormal ECG normal??

Hi, new to this site because I need some opinions.

I'm a 22 year old male, I went to my GP because of pretty bad fatigue and palpitations. He did an ECG that showed the following.

* Heart rate of 120 beats per minute (never goes below 110)
* Sinus Tachycardia
* Rightward axis
* Incomplete right bundle branch block
* RVH with repolarization abnormality
* Left ventricular abnormality

Went to a cardiologist and he said it's normal.
He did a stress test and an echo.

Should I go to another cardiologist for a second opinion?

Re: Abnormal ECG normal??

Did they do anymore tests at the cardiologists are did he just look at your ECG from your drs. office???

120 bpm is fast but not that fast but it is still considered Tachycardia but unless it is symptomatic with other issues they probably wouldn't stress too much...you could have been nervous or anxious.

I know when I have had stress tests, ECG's, and heart caths, the favorite phrase from my cardiologist is "For you, everything is normal" which means that yes I have some cardiac issues but there is nothing new going on that needs to be treated at this time. So not sure if that is what your cardiolgist was saying or not since I don't know if he had done his own testing or what.

Hope you find your answers soon!
